If it were possible to put aside all the reasons not to proceed with Plan B, we would still be left with the most personal and devastating impact: the forcible expropriation of property.

Governments worldwide reserve the right to expropriate property in order that they can proceed unimpeded with critical projects deemed of extreme necessity. Plan B cannot be considered to be of extreme necessity. Back when this project was just an example of financial recklessness and needless environmental destruction all based on unsubstantiated threats of danger and death, over 3,000 people signed a petition against Plan B. That was before the government started this relentless hounding of landowners.
