Our Minister of Science recently claimed … “We need to be basing our decisions….. on SCIENCE ! …or did the Minister misspeak ??
Fortunately this announced science interest could give the PM the SOLUTION to this delayed ,vital ,diluted bitumen (dilbit) export plan…Could the waiting BC and Washington State public interference cause Kinder Morgan to ‘pack up’ and leave ….causing us to find another pipe-liner to assist with export of Alberta dilbit.
As noted in an online report ‘the NEB … would hold a series of public hearings …to determine the route..….Could/should the NEB force Kinder Morgan to change its route….! .
Let the new Chief Science Officer , along with the NEB’ Chief Environmental Officer guide our government through to an independent, scientific risk assessed decision and determine where to build our dilbit export infrastructure … based on science— NO POLITICS !
