The NDP’s Environment critic is not buying what the Liberal government is selling when it comes to the Kitimat airshed report.
Spencer Chandra-Herbert says the province only released the report after being backed into a corner.
“It seems the BC Liberals first didn’t want to do the study, were forced to do the study, then they didn’t want to release the study, they were forced to release the study. Now they are trying to say it shows everything is greenlight go ahead when in fact the study says you have got to use caution. You need strong environmental management something the Liberals aren’t known for.”
Chandra-Herbert says the report shows the four LNG proposals for the area could potentially hard human health.
He says the NDP doesn’t oppose LNG but advocates it be done responsibly without turning a blind eye to challenges.
