With Enbridge’s tanker and pipeline project to the West Coast being in the news so much lately, many Canadians are learning about the issue for the first time. There’s so much information floating around that it can be hard to make sense of it all, so we’re opening the floor to your questions.
Just post your question on our Facebook page
, and we’ll respond to as many as we can in next month’s e-news.
Here are just a few of the questions we’ve received so far:
How many people depend on B.C.’s coast for their livelihoods?
Is it legally possible for BC government to levy a carbon tax on the carbon flowing through BC pipelines? I know it gets added if BC citizens burn it, but could a BC government require a carbon tax on carbon passing through BC? A $30/tCO2 carbon tax would return more than $100 billion over the 30 years of this pipeline.
I am just wondering how wide the Right-of-Way is proposed to be for the two pipelines?
