But are there deep pockets for spill response?
Re: “Aircraft need fuel to fly,” Letters, March 1.
The people of Richmond hate this project; city council has objected to it going ahead. The VAFFC continued to ignore these voices.
The B.C. government made the correct decision by suspending the environmental review it had been conducting. Much more is at risk than just the environment.
More information is required on this matter—more information from those tasked to ensure the safety of us, the citizens living and working here and not just relying on the corporate agenda.
They were happily proceeding ahead until the plug was pulled. The VAFFC have deep pockets spending huge amounts of money to bring this plan forward, but how deep are the pockets in regards to paying for any catastrophic disaster as a result of this dangerous project.
I am hoping the B.C. and federal governments have asked these important questions. Where is the financial mitigation plan?
