Some ‘answers’ for Mr. Anderson

The President of Kinder Morgan (KM)  Canada will answer ‘questions’ …. from communities  ON existing routes, with exception of Vancouver,which is on the ‘marine corridor’ ..   ALL OF SOUTHERN BC  is located on the ‘MARINE CORRIDOR’

,   which offers ocean bitumen spill potential in many of our multi billion dollar revenue generating waters …. !

Recall when Mr. Harper  counselled that SCIENCE ,NOT POLITICS should help us to decide —We’ve seen  ,no demonstrated ,SCIENTIFICALLY  proven method for  recovery of bitumen spills ,in TYPICAL  ocean conditions !

 

 

 

Washington State has produced a SCIENTIFIC  report which forecasts the  likelihood of bitumen spills in the Salish Sea….the NEB chose  to ‘not  hear’ that US EPA funded report ..all in the Canadian public interest ,of course !

KM will quickly  remind us that they ‘need not care’ ,as shipping is not their responsibility. Guess what—the BC public does care !

There is a SIMPLE way to fix the pipelines mess !

Build one pipeline system ,jointly ,from Alberta to  Port Simpson..or vicinity..

Imagine ,no new bitumen tankers to threaten   Douglas Channel,Burrard Inlet,Salish Sea waters and shores in BC and Washington State !

Such a move could regain BC public support …and  ‘assist’ with  negotiations  ??
