The Northern Gateway bitumen laden tankers are not welcome in the island bound Douglas Channel’ and other busy,local ,’tricky’ waters — a more open area ,north of Prince Rupert ,is suggested .
We’re not done yet !! The southern KINDER MORGAN TWINNING proposal is more frightening …we hear now that Kinder Morgan ‘ new pipeline pipeline capacity will be 780000 barrels per day—not 540000 barrels as signalled earlier !—allowing EVEN LARGER bitumen tankers —when the planned Second Narrows is dredging is completed ! The entire Kinder Morgan (KM) twinning project should be scrapped !
To get the ball rolling, Mr. Harper to instruct the NEB to declare ‘Condition 210 ’, instructing KM to join forces with Enbridge to ‘pipe’ dilbit from Alberta to ,north of Prince Rupert,…and on to world markets.
Such leadership is bound to bring a happier electorate to the polls in October 2015 !
PS—I just had a note from an old pipeline engineer,of the previous millennium —can we trust THESE wannabe pipe liners ‘?
Good question, Mr. Harper must decide !
