Squamish leaders told Appeals court they didn’t feel they had enough information to decide ….about….TMX!
Precisely…Neither the NEB or Government cared /dared to provide an ,independent, expert (science based)risk assessment for this potentially risky/ hazardous , major infrastructure(which included a shipping terminal ,pipelines and /storage tanks) along with and greatly increased number of loaded tankers required by their export plan.
Infrastructure projects like TMX typically are subjected to a risk study to protect the interests of the investors and the public
Fortunately our Court of Appeal , saw TMX approval process as incomplete , and essentially agreed with the community tanker related threats and First Nations issues! Our government has stable of scientists and Professional Engineers which could/should have counselled about the increased risk associated with planned increased number of loaded tankers in our southern waters. What did your experts counsel ?
