Coast Guard Layoffs/closures

CKNW has more on the air right now.

Vancouver regional office is moving to Victoria.

Tofino,Vancouver Harbour and Comox traffic centers closing.(think off them as air traffic control centers).

Kitts rescue center closing-rescue will now come from the Sea Island rescue group.

So close down the traffic centers while at the same time pushing pipelines to the coast and increasing the amount of tankers on the coast.

Get prepared to see another Exon Valdez incident.

Or you'll have no one to save you if your boat capsizes, or heaven forbid a major incident happens with a BC Ferry.

This is what you get when you vote Conservative. They cut services, but they spend money on giving big business tax breaks.

Soon we'll be paying taxes for no services. Maybe the first thing that should get shut down is the Senate. Then cut the number of members of parliment by 1/2. That ought to save us ton's of money, especially big fat, index linked pensions.

I think this is yet another sad pea-breained policy by the CRAPs . They are pusing hard for the Enbridge Pipeline and Kinder Morgan is rattling their sabres to expand. More Oil-tanker traffic off the coast of BC and they close ????

Yet another reason why 60% + of Canadians NEED TO GET THEIR ACT TOGETHER and get rid of these MORONS.

If only Canada wasn't such a B______ for the US and could run its own industries freely from US influence, Canada might be able to pull its own weight and get more more cash from ALL sources.

Honestly, Canada has ALWAYS been behind the US - even when the US economy is CRAP. What kind of junk is that?

If you think safety is expensive, just wait to see what an accident can cost.

Sea Island is approx 17 nautical miles from Vancouver harbour.Unless they bring out the hovercraft,or have a rescua craft on patrol it would take at least half an hr to get there.

(1 knot =1.15 mile per hr.)

So is every country in the world, the US has had the world's largest economy for close to a century now. They have ten times the population of Canada, how can we possibly compete with that?

It makes perfect sense for Canada to do so much trade with the US as they are our nearest trading partner.
