The Saanich Inlet Network’s Adam Olsen joined Dr. Eion Finn for this LNG presentation to an overflow crowd in Mill Bay last night. 

This is a must see for those living on Southern Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands.

    just a note:

    Eoin (pronounced like “Owen”, “O-in”, or “Own”, and sometimes spelt Eóin, Eoghan or Eoinn) is an Irish name, closely related to the Welsh name ‘Owain’ (anglicized as ‘Owen’) and related to the Scottish Gaelic name Iain

    A while ago when I first read about an LNG plant in Saanich Inlet, I thought about vast amount of heat the plant will have to dispose of. I know Saanich Inlet has a very slow turnover rate for the water in it and commented somewhere that the Saanich Inlet could become the world’s largets hot tub.

    Woodfiber is near the Squamish River, which has a significant salmon run. That means it has a significant number of salmon fry exiting the river each year. Woodfiber will be sucking in some of those fry and poaching (not frying) them. With enough money and zeal,Woodfiber could screen its water intake to minimize the destruction of Howe Sound’s fishery. We have not been good stewards of our resources to date and I don’t think the Malaysian backers of this project have any better stewardship record than we have.

    What a wonderful organized coming together of concerned electorates. We are informing ourselves, arming ourselves with information and moving towards consensus. On one hand I am pleased to see such a passionate and engaged electorate. On the other hand I am concerned , and I think we all know about that white elephant.

    Community engagement 101 tells us that our government officials; senior staff and elected representatives, have an obligation even a moral obligation to engage with us – not just Board and Council meetings but at a grass roots level-where they remove themselves from the Holy Grail of in camera meetings and share and collect ideas from the electorate – sound familiar? Its how the process works in most local governments.

    So, Ill expose the white elephant and name it as the CVRD. With their myriad of court cases, closed meetings and a shunning meaningful community engagement- we find ourselves standing on our own while senior staff dictate the process.

    Great presentation. Thanks to all who planned and helped, and to Richard for getting this online. Let’s hope we can keep greed from killing big and small in, around, and above the Saanich Inlet.

    I’m sure a link to Eion Finn’s charts and figures would be appreciated.
