Mr. Speaker, the closure of the Kitsilano Coast Guard station will put lives in danger, and the Conservatives know it.
A leaked email from maritime workers to DFO management says that the closure of the Kitsilano station was done without any consultation with them on safety. They say that the closure will lead to increased casualties.
The minister continues to say that there is no danger even when his own officials say that there is.
Why will the minister not listen to the people of British Columbia and his own staff and reverse this reckless decision?
