Southern spill response plan held after pipeline decision

A 150 million dollar oil-spill response plan has been put on hold following last week’s Trans Mountain expansion decision.

The plan, undertaken by the Western Canada Marine Response Corporation, had planned to enhance spill response times along the south coast dramatically in preparation for the pipeline.

New response bases were planned to house 40 new vessels and employ 120 new people to cut response times in half.

Now the project rests as another casualty of the saga as the funding was to come from pipeline fees charged to shippers.

The corporation is already tied in to 25 year lease.
