If you force the TMX-Tanker expansion then we demand a disaster plan to deal with the risk

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!


How much longer are we going to let Horgan and Trudeau ignore this?  

The Greater Vancouver area and the Fraser Valley NEED A DISASTER PREPAREDNESS PLAN so people know what to do, how they can prepare and how to evacuate the lower mainland. 

IF IT CAN’T BE DONE. THEN WE NEED TO KNOW THAT don’t you think?   


Tsunamis and earth quakes are not preventable but a chemical disaster or explosion from the TMX pipeline and Tanker traffic expansion and is. It is entirely preventable. 


There are 2.5 million people that live in the greater Vancouver area. In the event of a disaster:


There are not enough hospital beds to deal with all the casualties


There is no evacuation because of the bottle necks created by the bridges. 


There is no evacuation plan to get people out of the area


There is no public information on how to stay in the area safely


All of this information has been provided to the NEB. Countless experts, engineers, physicians, fire fighters and scientists have weighed in on this and provided written submissions to Justin Trudeau and Ralph Goodale minister of public safety they have not responded. They have had this information for years. 


“Benzene in particular can cause major, permanent and irreversible damage to immune system cellular function. Possible health impacts of exposure include drowsiness, dizziness, irregular heartbeat, headaches, tremors, confusion, unconsciousness and death. It also adheres to mucous membranes like those in the eyes, nose, lungs and skin, causing irritation.”


Is BC really that expendable? Is Human life that expendable for profit?
