Ian Anderson,president Kinder Morgan ,Canada,is ..“reaching out to..(Burnaby) to make sure they’re INFORMED … to balance the (mayor’s ) the emotional rhetoric” .
Washington State has an EPA funded leak probability study ( includes Salish Sea) that our NEB refused to hear !
Does Kinder Morgan have any scientific studies to help the Burnaby folks ‘balance off against (mayor’s ) the emotional rhetoric’ !
Oh yes ,we forgot—KM told us they have no responsibility for shipping..so need they care ?
Lessen the probability of bitumen leaks by locating shipping (and pipelines)in more open ,less congested areas..and until an independent,scientifically and field proven bitumen clean-up,recovery technology is developed and approved by Canadian government, let’s simplify and change routing to bring us closer to practical,common sense position which could be accepted by the BC public !
Most commercial carriers(including oil tankers) are equipped with the latest fail-safe technology.. BUT no technology is foolproof.! Common sense, practicable considerations SHOULD GUIDE US when an opportunity is apparent !
Build a simpler , COMBINED ,Enbridge/Kinder Morgan ,pipelines system from Alberta , to a Port Simpson sea loading terminal ,and ‘get’ the Alberta bitumen delivered to market !!
