n a release Monday, John Martin, BC Conservative Candidate for Chilliwack-Hope, responded to the BC Liberal Party's announcement by the Minister of Environment, that any proposed garbage incinerator will be subject to an environmental assessment.
"This announcement changes nothing. The door is still completely wide open
for Metro Vancouver to build a garbage incinerator, plans for which the
Liberal government approved last July," says Martin. "The only difference
between now and July is the government said a garbage incinerator 'may'
require an environmental assessment, while now it will. The Liberal
government continues to give the green light to this project, one which will
pollute our air quality in Chilliwack-Hope."
"What confidence can the people of BC have that an EAO permit won't be
issued for a garbage incinerator when the EAO has only refused certification
to one project since 1995?"
"A vote for the Liberals is a vote for the garbage incinerator," concluded
