Imperial Oil and BP hold public meeting on arctic drilling

There are plans for offshore drilling in the Beaufort Sea. This would not be the first time it happens, but the plans are to drill up to 1000 metres deep, which is by far the deepest ever.

Last week our CBC office got a fax informing us about the meeting…about 4 hours before it was scheduled to happen, and after any chance to inform people on radio.

About ten people were there at Ingamo Hall and only a handful raised some concerns. Others wholeheartedly approve of the plan because they are looking for jobs.

Here is the article at CBC North.
