The BC public helped ‘take down’ two governments as they showed their dislike of the goofy Trans Mountain Expansion Pipeline project (TMEP). Government conveniently ‘forgot’ about their claim to use science as they clumsily APPROVED our Prime Minister’s ‘PREFERRED’ pipeline…. An independent ,expert scientific risk assessment report would have offered the NEB an opportunity ,in the public interest, to determine which dilbit export marine terminal location offered best ‘protection’, for the environment .
The government science ‘farce’ continues… Our Science Minister explained that “We need to be basing our decisions and policies on facts…..and on SCIENCE !…”as she announced Government’s intention to appoint a Chief Science Advisor ?
A recent Senate ‘Pipeline Study’… made …recommendations on “how the government can restore legitimacy to the pipeline approval process”… which we assume will be ignored…!
Let the INDEPENDENT science (risk assessment) happen…and determine which marine port location offers the least probability of a tanker marine spill…and then approve this science based process.
