Letter: Stop all this 'insane talk' about Burnaby tank farm safety


Re: These are the scariest things I heard at a Burnaby tank farm safety event, NOW Blogs

article continues below

I would like people to know I live by a tank farm that is 10 times bigger than TMX in Burnaby.

I know for a fact that they have the best firefighters for an emergency. Also in Edmonton, Alta., there is refinery row with seven refineries at the edge of the city. Also are so well protected. All these fear-mongering people are an insult and have no idea what is involved in the industry.

Do people really think they want an accident? No. Stop this insane talk about the oil industry. Without it, business would grind to a halt. Think before you bang your drums.
