Governments must answer questions on possible dangers of Tilbury LNG plan

Editor:

Many questions need to be answered by both senior levels of government. Why are they promoting the establishment of an expanded LNG plant and loading dock on Tilbury Island in Delta when it could endanger the lives of everyone for miles around if an accident were to occur?

Nowhere else in the world will allow such a plant and loading facility to be located this near to a populated area or in such a narrow navigation channel.

Why does the shipping channel in Boston close all the bridges that cross the shipping channel, ban all other ship movement in that channel and escorts the LNG tanker with an escort of two armed coast guard vessels?

Why are our government representatives not showing the same concerns that other governments in the world have shown in requiring a safety zone for all projects that could endanger the lives of the people they represent? 

In our haste for an economic recovery from the pandemic, are we to place the people in yet another danger that could kill thousands?
