    Prevention by stopping the tankers from entering Burrard inlet is the first step to a cleaner waterway. Growing the economy is an obsolete idea. Shipping raw bituminous to other countries to be processed and burned is stupid. It’s also not realistic as there is no real demand plus asking taxpayers to pay for the old pipeline plus the cost of a new pipeline knowing that it’s not financially feasible is typical of Government supporting big business while pretending to care about citizens and the environment.

    The Trans Mountain Pipeline should be mothballed. There is no place in today’s world for extracting bitumen, “diluting” it chemically so it will flow in a 70 year old pipeline, then shipping it in supertankers to other countries for refining with all the known attendant risks and known threats to orcas and other marine life, to say nothing about the continued damage to the atmosphere. Moreover the economic modelling is no longer valid so we will be destroying our ocean and atmosphere AND subsidizing every barrel with Canadian taxpayers money.

    Here on the Atlantic Coast in the Province of Nova Scotia specifically Pictou County, has it citizens engaged in a fight to prevent not an emergency leak, but a deliberate dumping of Millions of Liters, up to 90,000,000 per day everyday of Pulp Mill waste effluent into our Northumberland Strait. They say it will be treated, but also tell us they will not know it composition. For the last 50 years it has been pumped into a natural lagoon and it is to be closed and cleaned up starting in 2020, after a Class II assessment due to recent tests that have found heavy metals, dioxins, furins and other dangerous contaminants in it. The Province of Nova Scotia Department of Environment is pushing for a Class I that will only take 30 days and allow this same toxic waste to be pumped into the Strait. To move something of a Class II category to our Clean Strait waters under a Class I assessment is unimaginable. Please take the necessary steps to protect our waters from this great risk, that could cause irreparable damage. Again this is not an emergency spill or leak, this is a deliberate dumping.

    # 2 All beaches with public access should have mobile unit on beach to help wildlife and access. Each community in Nova Scotia should educate and train volunteers and public in all educational institutions on the ways to assist wildlife affected by oil spills and each should be prepared for when.. Not if it occurs
