While most mariners would understand exactly what's being said, the point that is being made is that Enbridge, which produced the plan as though it highlighted an embracing of a new standard of tanker safety is actually only planning to meet the standard.
There are indications that the "improvements" to the north coast land-based radar system, (which does not exist at all right now), are nowhere near a stage of planning which would have it in place by the time Enbridge wants to start shipping liquefied tar. In fact they haven't even figured out who's going to pay for it.
Enbridge cheerleader, Harper, gets a warning too.
If Stephen Harper is such a proponent of the Northern Gateway project and demanding it be built, despite any objections, he'd better be prepared to put his money on the table. The entire central and northern BC vessel traffic management system is need of attention now. If the upcoming federal budget fails to address the requirement to increase vessel safety on a huge scale it is a demonstration that the Harper government is not terribly serious about the Enbridge proposal or it is ignorant of the inherent risks or it just doesn't care.Really, read the whole thing.
