As David Atkin notes in his editorial ….” either Mulcair …. believes there is a way to bring Alberta crude to Pacific tidewater while protecting the environment….OR ..?
….. FORTUNATELY, THERE IS A SENSIBLE WAY….to do that..
BC’ ,carefully managed , export and import facilities..already accept significant associated risk.. .AND BC SHOULD NOT BE PRESSED TO ACCEPT ,these badly conceived,publically UNACCEPTABLE projects.
BITUMEN LADEN TANKER TRAFFIC , would impact,UNNECESSARILY, our multibillion-dollar environmentally related revenue generating BUSINESSES ,in the island-bound Douglas Channel ,tricky island passes in the Salish Sea , and the busy Vancouver Harbour….
The NEB have already identified 354 conditions(deficiencies) in the ENBRIDGE and KINDER MORGAN proposals. A more acceptable tanker routing plan would see ONE PIPELINE SYSTEM from Alberta to Port Simpson …and maybe a refinery , with those good paying jobs ?
Someone needs to lead…please !
