“Trans Mountain(Kinder Morgan) submits that ….there are no impacts….that cannot be mitigated ”  ! Meanwhile there is an independent  ,EPA funded report..that states the exact OPPOSITE..this

study (see link below)CONCLUDED    “…simply…there is no guarantee that RISK increases ….. can be fully mitigated.”

Then came the  Harper government (JULY 2015)announced   ‘proposed BC ‘Think Tank’ ‘..is to STUDY the ‘RISKS OF MARINE SHIPPING’   ..where is this RISK STUDY ?

Our PM might explain why he decided that the KM proposal was OK….show us your science please.

Yes, a pipeline and ocean tanker scheme may be in the public interest…but not this ill-conceived TMEP proposal..that may unnecessarily threaten a key  BC multibillion dollar environmentally based tourist  industry….

Don’t send  bitumen laden tankers through our busy and getting busier shared Salish Sea  .. …Let these ,now esteemed, scientists show our leaders and the BC public a  less risky route plan..then decide.
