Don’t risk beautiful B.C.

Get rid of the Massey Tunnel. Dredge the Fraser even deeper. Approve the coal dock at Fraser Surrey Docks for shipment of U.S. thermal coal to China. Extend the Kinder Morgan pipeline southwest to Fraser Surrey Docks (FSD).

Result? Large coal-carrying ships and oil tankers using the Fraser River.

Undoubtedly this is why members of the Surrey Board of Trade and FSD travelled to Ottawa recently to plead their case for federal support for all of the above. Why is there no public outcry about this? Could it be that people are not aware of what is planned or are they too complacent?

Obviously people in Ottawa have no concern in protecting our environment here on the West Coast. Why risk removing the beautiful from beautiful B.C.?
