LNG project out of the question for Saanich Inlet

After reading the letter from Nigel Kuzemko, Steelhead LNG, I decided that a reply was essential.

After reading the letter from Nigel Kuzemko, Steelhead LNG, I decided that a reply was essential. I’m so glad that he is interested in discussions based on facts and science.

Yes, the Bamberton area has had contentious proposals before: ferrochromium plant, residential and commercial subdivisions, etc. Looking back at the proposals, they all had some merits but the residents rejected them and a major study of Saanich Inlet was done, which concluded that the Inlet was very fragile and great care and caution should be taken before anything major takes place on its shores, never mind on the Inlet itself.

This whole area could be a tourist Mecca which would draw many people, thus providing us with jobs and investments.

Can you imagine huge tankers coming and going crossing the Mill Bay ferry route? No, The Malahat LNG project is out of the question for this location.
