LET LADY LUCK DECIDE !

YES,Mr.Harper,exporting our natural resources is in the Canadian National interest.. but please  use a common sense plan that minimizes the probability and consequences of ocean bitumen spills ! The LNG industry required decades to solve  their transport and storage issues—and LNG now  seen as the ‘darling’ of the petroleum industry..
Government  talks about some  ‘world class’ bitumen containment and recovery method..Where is the scientific STUDY carried out by an independent research group,funded by the bitumen industry and government –for comparison with the proponent’s studies ..to demonstrate openly ,to the public,that bitumen spills can be contained and recovered successfully  –in typical ocean conditions ! 

We await this STUDY –or must we rely on lady luck..

In the meantime Mr. Harper,you must adjust  the west coast bitumen export plan and order that  just  one ,jointly managed, pipeline scheme be built ,from Alberta to Port Simpson OR VICINITY and eliminate increased BITUMEN TRAFFIC in our busy ,environmentally sensetive waters— which generate billions in revenue annually !
