Mr. Harper has signalled that the pipelines ,as proposed, will be built …’in the National interest’ !
Recent media reports indicate that the NEB has selective hearing ….and is likely to get us no where..
What to do ?
Form a ‘BC Action Committee’ from the willing, in our cities, and municipalities ,and be prepared to fund the services of consultants and media to help prepare and carry the ‘pipelines corridor concept’ arguments forward ! The ‘Committee’s’ main objective would be to emphasize the common sense benefits of a pipelines corridor ,(where feasible) from Alberta to Port Simpson — and get the public asking—’why not’?
The public too should continue to ask their elected reps pertinent questions..
You can bet that Mr. Harper will be watching the polls as the one ‘corridor concept’ idea takes hold.
With the ‘Committee’s’ findings in hand , Mr. Harper could order the NEB to reconvene and direct the wannabe pipe liners to resubmit their proposals and build a pipelines system that results in minimal risk of bitumen spills in BC waters….while delivering Alberta bitumen to world markets.
