NEB LACKS SUFFICIENT EVIDENCE…

NEB Quote;

“By considering all the ‘evidence  ….. the NEB … to make decisions …..in interest … of Canadians. “!

A Washington State, EPA funded ,’expert’ study  CONCLUDED    “…simply…there is no guarantee that RISK increases (in Salish Sea)….. can be fully mitigated.”

Also,where is the   proposed BC ‘Think Tank’ ‘..is to study the ‘RISKS OF MARINE SHIPPING’  ..in BC waters ?

 

Too little ‘evidence’ was presented…to the NEB…

The  NEB evaluates  technical ‘competence’  of the proposals…The ‘lay’ public make their best effort,likely with cultural/historical anecdotes( but no expert science)  to challenge  the  proposals….

 

 

 

Because the publics’ appeals ,to date,have been ineffective… the NEB is left with no option..but to recommend approval !

 

 

It’s still not too late to ask the local/Provincial governments to produce  expert environmental ‘hard ball evidence’ …which might give the NEB and Federal government sufficient data   to order another study…. to develop a publically acceptable bitumen export plan… !

So far the ‘pea shooter’ counter attack has not done the job..!
