Question of the Week | April 18

BACKGROUND:Standing outside the Best Western Inn there seemed to be little consensus on the oil tanker moratorium act in Terrace during the Senate committee hearings, with two groups of protestors standing metres away from each other on the sidewalk — one group in opposition of oil tankers on the coast, the other in support.


On April 16 and 17, more than 50 witnesses spoke to senators in Prince Rupert and Terrace on Bill C-48, legislation that would effectively ban more than 12,500 metric tonnes of persistent oil and crude oil from being transported from the Alaskan border down British Columbia’s north coast to the tip of Vancouver Island.
