Oil, aquaculture potential trump coastal conservation: Hedderson

From The Advertiser:

“Environment Minister Tom Hedderson says he doesn’t need a government study to see that the southwest coast of the province would be a perfect candidate to establish a marine conservation area

But it’s not going to happen, because the provincial government has other hopes for that part of the province.

Parks Canada had offered to pay for a feasibility study to look at the possibility of setting up a marine conservation areain the waters off the southwest coast, but it needed the go-ahead from the province.

But Hedderson said the government turned down the offer because it has high hopes for oil and gas exploration, aquaculture and fishing in that neck of the woods.”
