Environmentalist Wonders If Canaport Could Have Done More

The Canaport Community Environmental Liaison Committee is fit to be tied because the first it heard about the huge bird kill late last week was on the news. Thousands of birds died after apparently flying into the flaring at the L-N-G plant.

 A member of that committee, David Thompson tells CHSJ News if other birds had died the same way before last week, he wants to know if anything was done previously.

He wonders if they turned down the lights, tried to turn down the stack flare or put on sirens or made other noise to deter the birds away.

Thompson also speculates many more birds may have died than the estimated total of 75 hundred if they fell into the Bay or nearby woods.
