While MPs might look forward to that ,‘to die for’ pension, the electorate expect our elected MPs to represent THEIR BC CONSTITUENTS…and EARN that pension..…let’s hear debate… Instead members appear to be blindly following along with the PM’s unsupported decisions ….. about transporting of Alberta’s dilbit to market !
The key BC concern, always has been about dilbit spills…into our busy waters ,potentially impacting BC’ multibillion dollar environmentally related industry. Also, there’s concern about the KM 60+ year old pipeline that weaves its way through neighbourhoods ?
The Enbridge ,Northern Gateway plan to send dilbit laden tankers through the island-bound Douglas Channel…and the cherished Great Bear Rain forest area….. was DUMB… Unhappily the new government is as inept as the Harper bunch when it comes to gaining BC community support !
Let independent scientists demonstrate to our public that there is a scientifically determined ,SAFER, SMARTER pipeline route that gives oil tankers less risky access to the Pacific…then let the PM order the NEB to call for ONE new smarter pipeline proposal to deliver Alberta dilbit to market …more safely !
