  • 2014 New Westminster Mayoral and Council Candidates on the Direct Coal Transfer Project – New Westminster Environmental Partners
    be done in minimal quantity and with all reasonable environmental protection measures taken You can count on me as Mayor that any impact on New Westminster will be carefully monitored and any deficiency will be promptly reported to responsible federal and provincial agencies WAYNE WRIGHT I have been fully involved in opposition for this terminal I have made it known to other neighbouring Mayors spoken at events and always simply against the project I was seated in an event in Toronto with mayors from coal producing areas in BC and explained to them I was not against their mines and anthracite coal But I thought they should join with us to stop dirty US coal that no other port in the US will take Our port facilities should be used for a much higher job creating use for Gateway shipping which is to triple and more in the future I have no media items but I am sure you are aware of my and city position From our Council Candidates on the Direct Coal Transfer Project in alphabetical order by last name JOHN ASHDOWN I have not publicly stated my position as is not a civic issue with the exception of the dust contamination With modern day technology I am sure that can be remedied My objection to BC surrey handling USA low grade coal when US ports won t is an issue I have not looked at the facility at Texada Isl But would be concerned about environment issues regarding dust and contamination of waters Do have some experience with home in Beach Grove having to wash railings due to Roberts Bank coal CATHERINE CARTWRIGHT I do not agree with the shipping of U S thermal coal from Fraser Surrey Docks The limited number 25 of jobs generated from this facility shipment in no way compensates for the potential health and environmental damage that will stem from it However that being said given that it has been approved by Port Metro Vancouver and the chances unfortunately of reversing this decision are slim it is important that air quality and the environment be continuously monitored to ensure the mitigation steps planned are enforced and effective MIKE FOLKA Short answer I m against it BILL HARPER As you are aware I am a city councillor in New Westminster It was my motion that first challenged Metro Vancouver on the coal port by requesting any environmental assessment they had done regarding the proposal We invited Port Metro to council and challenged them on the potential risks on the environment and potential risks to people s health The council then held a public forum on the subject at Douglas College We have passed motions opposing the Ports project and are one challenging there decision in court I have been opposed to the development of this coal port every step of the way PATRICK JOHNSTONE Here is a recent piece I wrote http nwimby blogspot ca 2014 08 disappointing not surprising html JAIMIE McEVOY

  • NWEP Collective Statement: Members Support Judicial Review – New Westminster Environmental Partners
    Nations health officials and engaged citizens who almost unanimously oppose this project From our perspective their decision disregards the standards and bylaws established in the communities that host their operations It also ignores the body of science regarding the impact of coal dust on human health and the environment and the global impact of burning thermal coal Furthermore the Port failed to address the neighbourhood impacts of more than 2500 additional diesel locomotives passing though residential neighbourhoods every year a critical omission in our view Members see this decision coming at a time when the world community is coming to terms with the devastating evidence of the current impacts of climate change related to the burning of fossil fuels The global response against anthropogenic climate change has already begun and our regional neighbours are already taking action From drought ravaged California to Puget Sound local legislators are saying no to terminal proposals like this one We believe the move to make BC the port of last refuge as a means to benefit the province s economy is a move backwards that threatens our international reputation and our global responsibility In response to PMV s decision to support the expansion of coal exports our members commitment to protect our communities and to respond to the needs of our environment strengthens Community groups municipalities health and environmental professionals First Nations and concerned citizens from all walks of life are now united by a common cause We will continue to work together to call for accountability from members of our Port Authority our Government and from corporations who hope to gain the social license to operate in our communities and to add citizens voices to the decision making process for the benefit of our broader community NWEP Collective Statement All members who responded
