We agree with Mr. Black that removing bitumen from oil tankers on our fragile coastline is a good thing.
Also cutting greenhouse gases with a locally-sourced refinery is a better alternative for BC’s environmental future than the Northern Gateway Pipeline as recently proposed by the federal government.
Ultimately, we hope we would wean ourselves off our dependency on non-renewable oil.
What about promoting renewable energy sources such as solar and wind? Climate change is a reality and we all have to do our part to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
We urge everyone to write their local MP about this issue.
