The public comment period for the proposed Woodfibre LNG plant on Howe Sound has been extended, and that’s welcome news for a Bowyer Island resident who’s trying to get local governments to oppose the project.
Eoin Finn made his case to Councillors in Gibsons this week. He acknowledges that LNG shipping has a good safety record, but he says the Woodfibre location adds risk.
It’s not a federally regulated port, the channels are narrow, and traffic in the Salish Sea will be increasing from other projects
Finn wants local governments to mount the same opposition to Woodfibre as they did for a similar proposal on Texada Island a few years ago, and at McNab Creek in the ’90s
The new deadline for public comments is July 12th
