The Eagle Spirit group  has  recognized the importance of  gaining/earning  public acceptance.

The lack of early  negotiations/communication by the Enbridge and Kinder Morgan  pipeline and shipping proposals left us with our current pipelines mess !

These  BC pipelines,as proposed,are disasters in waiting because the associated  bitumen laden tankers routing  threaten local communities and  our

environmentally related ,multibillion dollar   businesses    in our environmentally sensitive waters…. Douglas Channel,Burrard Inlet, and Salish Sea. !!

 

First..many have said the the First Nations must be part of the solution…

Second ,,find a pipeline corridor that those potentially affected can agree with…

Third..negotiate a ‘package’ that provides  fair compensation,benefits and  maximizes opportunities for ‘locals’.

Four..combine Enbridge ,Kinder Morgan,and possibly other pipelines into an ENERGY CORRIDOR ,from Alberta to north of Prince Rupert , thus minimizing the need to disturb Canadian wilderness  .
