While accidents are fairly rare, they do happen and when they do the results can be catastrophic causing loss of life, injuries, property damage, and environmental damage. Why is this high-pressure pipeline and compressor station being proposed in a populated area close to businesses, homes, a daycare, a playground, and our emergency response centre? The proposed siting of both the high pressure natural gas pipeline and compressor station poses an unacceptable risk to safety of people in nearby homes and businesses along the pipeline route or within 1 km of the compressor station. This risk to human life is unacceptable.
Alternative locations for both the pipeline route and the compressor station are possible, but they are more expensive. Tell FortisBC that they must find another location for both the pipeline route and the compressor station.
