A BETTER PIPELINE DECISION…PENDING SOBER SECOND THOUGHT…

Terry Beech, Burnaby North-Seymour MP, appeared to be  supporting the many constituents that opposed the Trans Mountain Expansion Project (TMEP) …He’s now  decided to support his leader…… Unfortunately he and his elected colleagues have not been ‘released’ from the Liberal Party Line., as have appointed Liberal   Senators…to ‘ensure that Parliament works better’ says the P.M. ?   We’ll see .

Government  decisions might better be  ‘reviewed ‘ with sober second thought   by a liberated Senate—-to prevent ‘unintended’ consequences …..! Thanks to Sir John A, Macdonald !

Two background links ,well worth reading…

The better solution is for ONE pipeline…and to allow dilbit laden tankers to travel from a shipping terminal ,north of Prince Rupert ..  into open Pacific waters …not Burrard Inlet, the Salish Sea, Douglas Channel,,,or the Great Bear Rain Forest region…   Allow maximum volumes of Alberta dilbit to be exported at world market prices …

We hope  their  ‘Pipeline Study’ will give Senate  an opportunity   to show themselves as a more meaningful  ‘component of government’ and help us to expedite these vital pipeline decisions…more sensibly !!
