Stop The Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion!|
posted on February 23, 2019
Feb 23/18: Canada’s National Energy Board announced their decision to approve the controversial Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion. This is their second approval following a Court order to review their first decision. They were supposed to review the impact on the endangered Southern Resident Killer Whales whose families number only 75 members.
The NEB even acknowledged that the Trans Mountain project is "likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects" on endangered southern resident orcas. But it claimed that “benefits” to Canadians is worth the “risk”. No “risks” that knowingly can cause the extinction of a population should be permitted!
If they build another pipeline it will increase shipments of diluted bitumen from Alberta to British Columbia. There would be an increase oil of tanker traffic moving through Burrard Inlet from 30 to over 400 every year. A bitumen spill is very hard to cleanup and would permanently harm ecosystems! Remember that the one Exxon Valdez Oil Spill in Alaska devastated orca populations and other marine wildlife.
In addition to risking the survival of these orcas it will increase Green House Warming. This pipeline decision is a pivoting point between the death blows to all life with expanding the fossil fuel industry and the saving of all life changes from phasing in the safe Green Energy Industry! This Trans Mountain expansion would perpetuate pollution for decades!
This Oil Pipeline plan still has to be approved by the Federal politicians. It is time for all to put the politics aside. We must all change our lifestyles! We must all continue to fight to Save the Orcas and the Planet!
