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 .
