Our challenge is to MINIMIZE THE PROBABILITY of a
BITUMEN TANKER spill in our waters.
the Kinder Morgan(KM) media demonstration,for handling of a ‘worst case’ scenario,at their Westridge Marine terminal..where Michael Davis ,
of Trans Mountain,
“large spills ,become so UNLIKELY as to become IMPRACTICAL for regular service !!…Comforting,eh ?
I suppose we’re to understand that OTHERS will handle those UNLIKELY bitumen spills beyond the KM terminal, Specifically,what others ?
Our leaders must decide who,when and where, how ,bitumen will be transported and how spills will be dealt with in our waters… while still encouraging export of our resources,so vital for our economy…! Alberta and customers wait !
By building ‘smarter’ pipelines and restricting tanker traffic to ‘least busy’ routes, we’ll have made our best,most practicable choice..and
MINIMIZED THE PROBABILITY of a ‘bitumen spill’ event in our environmentally sensitive ocean waters ..and maintained our multibillion dollar revenue generating tourist businesses…
