Pipelines and oil tankers are necessary—but corporate/political leaders we must do a smarter job of ‘managing’ these revenue generating resource export opportunities?
The pipelines MESS in BC—shows what happens when political and corporate leaders choose to ignore public input/participation..
The public understands that there is no perfect answer when it comes to building complex resource infrastructure . Our wannabe pipeliners never provided an independently produced ‘least risk’ study/option..but we did see a risk study produced for ‘the client’….and guess what ?
The resource industry continues to rely on bullying,always KNOWING that ,ultimately their friends in ‘high places’ will clear the way for them..so why bother to deal with those annoying ‘peasants’ ?
Boards of Directors will claim that they provide Corporate stewardship..let THEM ‘steward’ their corporation to a publically acceptable solution– by working with political and local leaders to gain a better understanding of the main/real issues..The public are well informed and will not listen to the usual piffle .
Corporate and political leaders have hinted that the current pipeline schemes …could stand a ‘review’..but the corporations have unwisely chosen to ignore these ‘hints’.. Come on Boards, there’s still time to fix things !!
