Hoping For The End Of Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Expansion!

Re: Closing Remarks Roberts Bank Terminal 2

Since 2005 Lifeforce has sent undeniable evidence to stop any expansion of the Roberts Banks Terminal. Numerous others have provided their evidence. Hopefully this is finally the end!

It is rather unbelievable that it was not stopped in 2005 with Environment Canada’s criticism of the expansion at the Roberts Bank Terminal.

Their report included: “EC has adopted the position that the risk of eutrophication within the inter causeway cannot be dismissed. If it does occur, the state of eutrophication is predicted to result in such massive environmental change between the causeways that there would be public outrage as well as agency embarrassment at an international scale, not to mention the loss of productive habitat for a very large and diverse assemblage of biota.” This EC information is in Section 2 Wildlife:

The ongoing environmental reviews and submissions are proof that there are absolutely no measures that can be taken to stop the loss of habitat and the diversity of wild fauna and flora.

As the saying goes “A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words”. Lifeforce would add “ And Endless Hopes”. The endangered orca populations are the unfortunate icons in part representing the human destruction of wildlife and habitats. Lifeforce attaches our picture “Protect All Life and Habitats! Stop Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project! (And Westshore Coal Terminals Too!)”
