The spokesperson for the proposed plastics plant was dismissive of Dr. Hay's concern about the harmful emissions that would come from the plant. He said with new technology, the emissions would be decreased. But there will still be emissions and those are very harmful ones for human health, according to my understanding.
The 2008 report that identified only three possible sites for this type of heavy industry was written before the spread of housing south along the Fraser River, which puts the proposed plant in fairly close proximity of that housing.
I believe that building the plant where it is currently proposed would pose an unacceptable risk for human health in that area.
If it is built, it must go north of town.
