Better look to Plan B

To the Editor,

Anyone still banking on the Raven Coal mine project to assist with building an alternate road, or rebuild rail to Port Alberni should start looking at Plan B.

Compliance Energy has announced record losses in their 2013 financial statement, and on March 31, 2014, I-Comox Coal Inc. officially withdrew from the Comox Joint Venture, owners of Raven coal project.

The company also recently missed their own self-imposed deadline to resubmit their application to the government, after their initial coal mine application failed miserably last year and was rejected.

Let’s hope the local  transportation committee has a Plan B.

Stacey Gaiga,

Coal Free Alberni
