Putting Citizens At Risk

What Do British Columbians do when their governments prefer LNG over public interest?

By Roy L Hales

Screen-shot-2014-03-18-at-3.43.47-PM1The communities of Ladner and Steveston, as well as parts of Southern Richmond and Northern Delta, could be put at risk. So are people living on Bowen and Anvil Islands, as well as Howe Sound. The people who live or work in these areas, are all within what the US coast Guard defines as the hazard zones of LNG projects for their areas. As Rafe Mair recently put it, neither the Canadian or British Columbian governments “give a fiddlers fart” about putting citizens at risk. Continue reading Putting Citizens At Risk

The CEAA Has Not Been Taking Comments

The Comment Period For Delta’s Proposed LNG Terminal Has Been Reset to End June 24

By Roy L Hales

Screen-shot-2014-03-18-at-3.43.47-PM1The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency’s (CEAA) 20-day comment period for a proposed mega-sized LNG terminal in Delta, BC, began on May 22. If the WesPack Tilbury Marine Jetty is built, it can bring up to 120 LNG tankers and 90 LNG  carriers to the Fraser River every year. This might have totally escaped our notice, if someone from Voters Taking Action On Climate Change (VTACC) hadn’t seen a notice a notice about the proposed LNG facility on the British Columbia’s Environmental Assessment Office’s (BC EAO) website. That was last week. Today, a day before the comment period officially ends, word came that the CEAA has not been taking comments.

Two Days Left To Ask For An Environmental Review

By Roy L Hales

Screen-shot-2014-03-18-at-3.43.47-PM1Building a major LNG terminal in Delta would have a major impact on the mouth of the Fraser River.  The diaphragm at the top of this page shows how LNG tankers would come into, and leave, the proposed WesPack Tilbury Marine Jetty. Even with the help of tugboats, they need most of the Fraser River’s width to turn around.  The National Energy Board has already granted an export license for a facility that could bring up to 120 LNG tankers and 90 LNG barges to this terminal every year. In the US, LNG proponents need to assess potential hazards all along LNG tanker routes, but the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency is considering waiving an environmental assessment. The public comment period on this project is almost over,  you have two days left to ask for an environmental review. Continue reading Two Days Left To Ask For An Environmental Review
