I recall reading in a biography about President Franklin Delano Roosevelt …when he was asked if he’d ever accepted a bribe…he replied ‘no…but then I never had real good offer ‘ ! Which suggests that, likely ,we all ‘have a price’…. Other communities might like to know the ‘Chilliwack GRANT formula’ for gaining this community’ ‘permission’ ! Recall PM Trudeau’s recent counsel …that “governments ,after deliberation ,grant permits…and communities grant permission ”. Most southern BC coastal communities might as well get their share…too !
Vancouver Mayor Robertson’s CFO should be developing their price…the Provincial treasury ,would appreciate a ‘boost’…Premier Clark might at least ask ??
Unless governments and communities stand against this ill-conceived Kinder Morgan pipeline twinning scheme…we’ll end up with a pipeline/tanker operation that we didn’t want/need…for the next half century ..or longer !
