Environmental group opposes WesPac’s LNG project

Environmental group opposes WesPac's LNG project

Voters Taking Action on Climate Change have recently raised concerns over the WesPac Midstream’s proposed LNG facility in Delta B.C.

Canada’s National Energy Board recently granted WesPac the license to export natural gas from Canada.

The company is now seeking environmental approval with the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency.

VTACC is concerned about the LNG tanker traffic in the narrow Fraser river and the fact that it is excluded from WesPac’s project description.

The group requests the Federal Environment Minister, Leona Aglukkaq, to conduct the assessment of the project and reject BC’s request to substitute provincial assessment. VTACC claims that BC has thrown its full support behind LNG exports and it can’t be confident a provincial assessment will objectively evaluate project risks. Substitution is neither appropriate nor in the public interest, said the group in its request.

VTACC also called for public comments on the proposed project that are due June 11.
