U-N-Believable. Harper Closes BC Oil Spill Centre
The Harper government is closing British Columbia's command centre for emergency oil spills just as that fundamentalist degenerate guts fisheries protections and 'streamlines' environmental approvals for the Northern Gateway bitumen pipeline and Kitimat tanker port.
The oil spill operations will be centralized in Quebec.
The move comes as Kinder Morgan also looks to increase bitumen supertanker traffic through Vancouver harbour from the current 70-per year to 360.
BC's Liberal in name only provincial government, meanwhile, doesn't have a clue how to respond to Ottawa's eco-backstabbing.
Meanwhile Harper EnviroShill Peter Kent's office issued a statement claiming "This will not impact Canadians or the environment." It seems the employees affected were actually working on meaningless stuff such as "providing information about environmentally sensitive land and species at risk."
