Vancouver to increase oil tankers?


I was made aware this morning via an email from the dogwood initiative,of just how many tankers are leaving Vancouver containing Oil. It is a staggering amount. Dogwood state that in 2010 the Kinder Morgan Pipeline we’re sending out 71 tankers a year. These ships contain crude oil from the tar sands. The sad part is, they want to continue to increase these numbers to 288 tankers a year!
It is coming up to BC municipal election season and it is here that many of us are empowered to speak with our vote. Check out the article at Dogwoods website. We don’t want an oil spill on the coast of BC.
