Re: "Pipeline best option: VAFFC," Letters, Feb. 1.
Mr. Pollard gives the public his latest corporate group think strategy of the proposed jet fuel storage and pipeline through Richmond.
This does little to assuage my concerns or many other now living in this community. No mention of the removal of the Deas Tunnel and the re-routing of commuters, east to a proposed new bridge at huge expense.
Everyone but the VAFFC seems to be against this terrible idea.
I didn't read any financial liability the VAFFC is willing to assume when disaster does happen from a spill.
How much insurance has this consortium taken out to cover the huge costs of a clean up? What is the limit of their liability payable before the federal or provincial governments have to step in?
Who is going to handle their disaster response and who is going to pay the cost's for the enviroment, fishing and the infrastructure that will be damaged? I didn't here that from Adrian Pollard. Why not?
