Science says reject RBT2


Eager to get its flawed Roberts Bank Terminal 2 (RBT2) project approved, the Port of Vancouver promises it can mitigate the impacts, but scientists confirm "they can't mitigate the consequences."

Earlier this week, we shared with you the unanimous opposition from the City of Delta for the RBT2 project- where the City of Delta is urging the federal government to listen to the science. The opposition continues!

A group of concerned scientists are speaking out about the potential impacts of RBT2 on more than 100 at-risk species, including endangered Chinook salmon and southern resident killer whales, in a letter to the federal Minister of Environment and Climate Change Steven Guilbeault.

"If the recovery of Canada's endangered and iconic wildlife is a priority for the government of Canada, as stated, then it must reject the proposed Terminal 2 project," the letter reads. The scientists emphasize how the Federal Review Panel's 2020 report on the project concluded the port expansion would have significant adverse and cumulative effects on Fraser Chinook salmon and significant adverse effects on endangered southern resident killer whales.

A recent published article in The Narwhal and this press release provide further insights.

It is time to listen to the science and #RejectRBT2.
