During the election campaign, the Liberal Party promised to ban oil tanker traffic on the B.C. North Coast.
Now I know election campaigns are filled with lies, however, a promise is a promise. If they would still like to look their grandchildren in the eyes, please follow through on these promises.
Just one small tugboat which is leaking diesel fuel along the coastline of B.C. is having a harmful effect and is poisoning marine life that sustains local communities of wildlife and human communities.
The Heiltsuk Nation and others living on the coast will feel the effects from this spill for many years. What will happen if a huge foreign-owned tanker has a similar spill? I remind the world once again of the Liberal Party’s promise to ban all oil tankers from the coast of B.C.
