Mr. Harper has signalled that the pipelines will be built …’in the National interest’ !
Recent media reports indicate that ‘yacking’ at the NEB hearings is likely 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 new conceptual 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 The Committee’ aim would be to get the public asking—’why not’? You can bet that Mr. Harper will be watching the polls .
With the ‘Committee’s’ findings in hand , Mr. Harper could order the NEB to be reconvened to direct the wannabe pipe liners to resubmit their proposals .
The other option is to let the bully pipeline corps push us around…for their benefit …and potentially, at our peril..!
