Okay. So the VAFFC has requested a second suspension of the environmental assessment of it's proposed supertanker port/holding tanks/pipeline project.
The consortium behind the proposed jet fuel delivery plan has launched a telephone survey that has some locals questioning its tactics.
The environmental review into the jet fuel delivery plan has been suspended for the second time.
Re: "Blaze proves need for pipeline: Consortium," News, Feb. 22.
The oil refinery blaze in Washington State is exactly the kind of incident that highlights the need for a new fuel supply to YVR.
Calling the project an environmental menace and an affront to common sense, the movement against bringing jet fuel to Vancouver International Airport via tankers and an underground pipeline picked up a little steam last Friday.
Adrian Pollard, director of the Vancouver Fuel Facilities Corporation (VAFFC), states that the marine terminal, 80 million litre storage facility and pipeline (15 km upstream on the banks of the Fraser River) are ". undergoing a rigorous environmental assessment process that will ensure the project provides a safe and environmentally responsible solution."
