Plas­tics plant puts health at risk

The Prince George Citizen - - Opinion -

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. Heather Saper­gia Prince George
