LNG processing and export facility on the coast with a 2017 operational target date.
What does this mean for Howe Sound and how will this impact citizens of West Vancouver?
This project is currently in a very limited public comment period, now is the time to learn more.

    Please forward the following to Elspeth and Ray, who may not know me
    but they can talk to Paul Burlingette. Thank you

    Paul just sent me the information for the upcoming meeting at WVan
    library regarding the lastest LNG proposal in Howe Sound.

    Paul Burlingette, Hugh Hamilton and I founded West Van Streamkeepers
    Paul sent me a note about the upcoming meeting at West Van library regarding
    LNG proposal at the old pulp mill near Squamish

    Around 2001, while I still lived in Gleneagles, I helped Gibsons’ and Squamish
    residents stop the world’s largest LNG storage plant at McNab Creek. I was a
    physicist and spent the last half of my professional career with Environment Canada
    in hydrology and water quality before I met Paul and helped with West Van Streamkeepers.
    I live in Victoria now for family reasons but Paul and I keep in touch.

    Below are results of me googling “LNG supertanker” and explosion

    Please read the first 3 documents to understand what will happen if one
    of these supertankers explodes near Squamish or if there is a massive
    explosion at the pulp mill site if the LNG is stored in a tank farm there.
    The effect could be amplified by the surrounding mountains. Don’t
    forget the Halifax explosion and its’ massive devastation.

    The 3 papers give the equivalent tons of TNT and Hiroshimas carried
    for a specific tanker size. The 3rd paper suggests the size of the areas
    that could be impacted.

    I hope this is of help to save all your past environmental stewardship efforts.
