Thank you Sir for the courtesy of providing your rebuttal. We respect and appreciate your views, but we categorically disagree with your suggestions, criticism and the continued hyperbole you express, such as the suggestions of the use of “super tankers” in our waters. The risk fears your cite, while warranting review, action and high standards of mitigation as we point out in our op-ed, have been canvassed and is being assessed by independent experts during the NEB process. We believe that if Canada cannot address and sustainably and safely address the movement of product to market as is done in many jurisdictions, not the least of all in Canada’s largest port, the environment globally is presented with greater risks not fewer.
