Currently about 1% of the ships visiting the port of Vancouver transport crude oil, the KM expansion will increase that to over 10%
A whopping 10%. My point exactly. The risk of fuel spills comes from every ship and probability of a spill from poorly regulated cargo or cruise ship is much higher than the risk for tightly regulated oil shippers. We see the difference in actual data on spills.

The bottom line: people in BC are happy to accept risk to Canada's coastline for their own economic well being but suddenly get risk adverse when there is not a direct link to the BC economy. So the "we won't accept risk" argument is clearly self centered BS. We either have a country are we don't. Which is it?
