Our Prime Minister, early on, PROMISED to use science when deciding …but soon forgot ?
Kinder Morgan wants to increase dilbit tanker traffic in BC/Washington shared Salish Sea waters— by 700 %…!
Yes , the new tankers are double hulled, and better tended and equipped …BUT there’s been no independent risk assessment science that supports this great increase of dilbit laden tankers in these ‘chosen’ busy ,commercially lucrative waters….Pipelines and tankers, typically, fail because of ‘human error’ leaving us with just one common sense approach…and that is to minimize the probability of a tanker spill incident.., thus the newly ‘promised science’ is welcomed…hopefully , not too late ?
Our PM said …. “We need to be basing our decisions and policies on facts, on evidence and on SCIENCE !…”
Ask our scientists to produce a ‘risk assessment’ to locate the least risky marine traffic routes in the BC coast .
Now’s the time to remember your PROMISE MR. Prime Minister ,and find that least risky tanker routing plan …before it’s too late !
