The irresponsible take Robin Silvester, CEO of the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority, is voicing on the Roberts Bank Terminal 2 development is another spin put out by their team of development marketers whose livelihoods depends on expanding and supporting VFPA activities.
What exactly does the phrase “critical generational project” even mean? Who came up with that? Obfuscation, dismissal of critics and paid scientists on their team, it is ridiculous and hard to watch.
I took part in the Canada Environmental Assessment Authority's investigation into the Cumulative Impacts of port development.
Robin Silvester's team was embarrassing to watch as they had only one response to all the science presented that proved the damage already done and future likely damage. “We can mitigate that.”
The ability to hide behind your marketing team is wearing thin.
We see what is behind the curtain and watching the port development destroy critical habitat that all us humans depend on to thrive is very ugly, indeed.
