  1. “We’ve got tankers going up and down the St. Lawrence for heaven’s sake. I don’t know why we’d ban them necessarily off the West Coast.” – Christy Clark, Feb. 24, 2011.

    “We found over a decade of neglect in compliance and enforcement program activities within the Ministry of Energy and Mines, and significant deficiencies within the Ministry of Environment’s activities. Overall, we concluded that compliance and enforcement activities of the two ministries are inadequate to protect the province from significant environmental risks.” Carol Bellringer – BC Auditor General May 2016

    Relax folks. The province is in good hands.
