Putting the Assumptions to the Test examines, and discounts, the key assumptions made by the federal science panel on offshore oil and gas in their submission to the federal government in February, 2003. This report, written by Susan Rutherford, L.L.B. and commissioned by the David Suzuki Foundation and the Living Oceans Society, concludes that regulations would not adequately protect B.C.’s coast from the negative impacts of offshore oil and gas development.
