Of course these pipe line/shipping companies ,along with ‘Ottawa’ experts ,would be wise demonstrate their skills at a mock bitumen spill incident in Burrard Inlet..! More good news..’We’ intend to remove ‘people’ from any potential problem areas—- most ‘incidents’ are the result of people errors…! We see the need for oil shipping or pipelining—however WE CAN DO THE COMMON SENSE THING….restrict ship and pipeline routing to areas with the least potential for the feared bitumen spill incident ..! Locate bitumen export shipping terminal at a point just north of Prince Rupert ,to be served with a joint venture (Enbridge/Kinder Morgan) pipe line system from Alberta..resulting in open ocean access to world markets… Result… bitumen spill threats minimized or eliminated in; 1. Douglas Channel and other northern waters;and 2. Southern BC waters—Burrard Inlet,Boundary Pass, Haro Strait,Gulf islands,southern BC Coast generally Also,no need for Kinder Morgan twinning project ! A simple doable solution..ADDRESSING many BC concerns..
