Allowing oil tankers to travel along Canada's Pacific coast is a disaster waiting to happen. After the major oil spills committed by Exxon in Alaska and British Petroleum (BP) in the Gulf of Mexico, Canadian environmentalists are asking that oil tanker

Until oil tankers improve their safety record, I don't want them near the coast, either! I have come, since the Exxon Valdez incident 30 years ago, to boycott any oil company who ships their oil in ill-maintained tankers. And, BP has lost all but 2 or 3 franchisees in this area of 100,000+ residents due to boycott. We knew the franchise owners were suffering financially, so we bought items sold in their stores, but refused to buy the gas. All have, at the end of their contract date, switched to other oil companies with the exception of 3. So you see, boycotts DO work!

Canada; Please don't give oil tankers a chance to have a spill in your waters. I am an American so my advice is based on 20/20 hindsight.

We don't need to encourage the use, and misuse--and spilling, which will happen--of oil, in Canada, or anywhere, for that matter! Keep oil tankers in the museum of 20th century death devices where they belong!

As someone who lives on Canada's west coast, I have been signing petitions, speaking out against the various oil pipelines and oil tankers for quite awhile. Some companies have even falsified maps of the channels tankers would have to travel through, getting rid of water hazards and minimizing the currents, so it looks like it will be safe. Aarrgghhh!

I have lived in BC for over 40 years and see various transport ships all the time, including tankers. As it is, there are 3 oil ports within 20 minutes of my house along the ocean front. And I worry about spills. When I signed a petition, I received an e-mail reply from one of the provincial politicians full of stuff about safety measures --- one was a requirement that all tankers be compartmentalised double hulled which the Exxon Valdez wasn't. Writing off our environment in such a cavalier fashion has yet to deter me. I don't want tankers on the coast. I have seen too much what can happen in extreme seas.

The North Pacific weather, coupled with a rocky coast would make this a difficult area to transit. This is not a place for tanker traffic. We need to get going on electric vehicles and transition away from oil and gas where we can anyway. Thank you!
