Caught a little glimpse of the news regarding plastics from around the world being brought to Lewisporte to convert to liquid natural gas.

Maybe a question to your listeners might be: what might the environmental impact be, if any, in regards to air and water pollution.

We have seen Third world countries returning waste to developed countries, basically saying, “Keep your garbage!”

Just curious how the Lewisporte and surrounding area residents might feel?

Too late to close the barn door when the horse is out.

Environment health is #1 in 2020.
