Although I’d wanted to stick to BP as the environmental aspect of this blog, I can’t help but to be concerned about rumours of a gravel pit proposal in my own Pacific Ocean back yard. I know lots of families on Gambier Island and they have talked to me about the possibility of Burnco Rock Products developing a gravel pit at McNab Creek!
Apparently, the aggregate would be processed on Gambier and then shipped across Howe Sound to Burnaby – sounds like an environmental disaster on all sides. Neither of these things happen without huge infrastructure as anyone who has seen a pit in operation knows.
I saw no mention of this product when I checked out their website, so either it is not announced or just rumours, and let’s hope it is the latter.
If anyone has any information on this, send me an email (annon) and I will continue to post about this project.
