The BC public tried to get involved in the pipelines public hearings……. but the government of the day wouldn’t listen…!
During the recent election campaign ,one gang promised , ad nauseam ,to ‘listen’ and use ‘science’ to help them decide!..This gangs’ PM has stated his preference for the Kinder Morgan pipeline twinning scheme…Were his advisers not paying attention when BC public expressed their great dislike of the much increased tank farm capacity and increased bitumen laden tanker traffic in our ever busier southern waters ?
The ‘science’ required would be a world class storage and shipping risk assessment ..Yes, risk studies prove only that ‘something’ is becoming more/less probable…
….and sooner or later, government ,in the public interest, must decide when the risk becomes too high..
The Harper government promised a shipping risk study for BC coast…where is that study ?
Our provincial government is spending billions to earthquake proof or abandon public schools …..based on risk assessments..!! Stupid government !?
Yes mister PM , do the science—THEN decide..!
And now about your decision to ban oil tankers from BC’ northern waters…?
