François Choquette filed a motion to reject the proposed Port of Cacouna oil terminal

François Choquette table tomorrow, Thursday, October 9, 2014, in the House of Commons the following motion on the proposed oil terminal at Gros-Cacouna:

Mr. Choquette (Drummond) — That, in the opinion of the House, the proposed Port of Gros-Cacouna oil terminal, which will be used for the sole purpose of exporting unprocessed Canadian oil, will have a negative impact on the Canadian economy through the loss of well-paid jobs, will constitute an unacceptable environmental threat to the St. Lawrence ecosystem, including the beluga whale population, and therefore, is not consistent with the principle of sustainable development, and must be rejected.
