In 1978 Andrew Thompson ‘concluded’ that oil tankers should not be permitted in the BC North Coast .. ....The Thompson report included much anecdotal comment …and little, if any, science..
Trans Mountain’ current expansion proposal is not acceptable to the BC public…again little independent ,scientific study was offered…
Trans Canada supplied much of Canada and the US with natural GAS for several decades…now, this underutilized pipeline becomes a profitable OIL transporter..and Energy East ,is born ……will science play a role to help you decide ?
PM Trudeau ,orders oil tankers be banned from Northern BC waters..effectively killing the Enbridge Northern Gateway project,as proposed..Where’s the science , please ?
Northern Gateway and Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers(CAPP)..appear ready to discuss issues..
Northern AND Southern BC waters are valuable and precious …Would it not make make more sense to study ALL the issue before deciding ? Happily ,PM Trudeau seems to love our scientists..so let them HELP US develop the best options…,THEN YOU can make that imperfect decision !
