Justin Trudeau and Alberta Premier Notley has expressed a preference for Kinder Morgan pipeline  twinning project….before acting on their ‘gut feeling’  let our ‘now beloved’ scientists demonstrate to Prime Minister Trudeau  …a scientifically (not politically)based decision to minimize the probability of a  disaster in our major  industry ––the environment !
We need to see a demonstration of a spill clean-up at ‘real life’ scene……The recent, media’ spill handling’ mock up  ,proved little.
It’s happened before ,so why not plan for ANOTHER  CN rail bridge being ‘taken out’ and shutting down of national rail traffic and affecting much of the import and export business…  Oh …yes and what   about the need for dredging the Second Narrows to accommodate  EVEN larger oil tankers !!??
AS the marine traffic increases the probability of a bitumen spill  incident increases! !  Washington State produced a risk study that concluded…  “…simply…there is no guarantee that RISK increases ….. can be fully mitigated. ..And where’s the BC ‘Think Tank’ ‘..to STUDY the ‘RISKS OF MARINE SHIPPING’
Yes..let’s make our best effort to NOT MAKE A HUGE MISTAKE,needlessly !!
