Enbridge and Kinder Morgan ,by now, must know that … SMARTER ,’ sincere’, early PUBLIC CONSULTATION and NEGOTIATIONS with the many who OBVIOUSLY would be concerned, may have seen pipelines much closer to the construction phase by now…and, could have shown a better economic outlook for Alberta—and Canada.
BUT, when the pipeliners, and government , decide to disregard BC public concerns,outright, we will resist. Now we will call on the ’ new bunch’ in Ottawa to ‘ counsel’ the oil patch to hear the public and not ignore/scoff at their concerns… Build pipelines that offer,statistically, minimum threat to our lands and waters. Douglas Channel,Burrard Inlet and the Salish Sea support some of our most important ,multi-billion dollar economic and environmental related businesses… !
BC knows about export and import infrastructure and deals with problems frequently…….and does not welcome these,unnecessarily risky , pipe line ‘schemes’ !
