Bitumen pipelines and oil tankers will be publically acceptable in BC
1.we are READY to help at sea with distressed tankers and have an INDEPENDENTLY ,scientifically proven, field tested, BITUMEN containment and recovery technology for TYPICAL OCEAN CONDITIONS ..and
- MINIMIZE the probability of bitumen spills !
Did the Russian freighter ‘event’ waken us…our Canadian Coast Guard did their best…BUT surely there are new ,adequate, rescue vessels IN ‘the PLAN’—so we can be READY.
From the outset,the Enbridge and Kinder Morgan ill-conceived pipeline schemes disregarded BC’ PUBLIC CONCERNS !!
Thanks to the Russians ,Mr. Harper must now understand that BC does not want multi-fold increases in bitumen volumes ‘unnecessarily’ plying our busiest ocean waters..
Alberta can just as well send it’s bitumen (to Port Simpson)through a combined pipelines system—while minimizing the probability of bitumen shipping incidents in our busiest waters; the multi billion dollar, tourist generating businesses and environmentally sensitive ocean areas..
While Mr. Harper ‘solves’ the world’s problems we hear diddly squat about solving problems in Lotus Land..check the polls,then take action !
