..a couple of excerpts follow;
“…. the environment is B.C.’s economy. …..pipe-liners will (tell) the community (everything is … OK ) because we’re in charge.
…. we see a pipeline taking bitumen … to the coast at some point, ….but …First Nations ..having a far greater role …….”
A friend tells me…the First Nations must be part of the Solution’… Todd Coyne’s report seems to agree …bullying and talking down to all of BC ,including First Nations, was Enbridge’s undoing ! Many remember Janet Holder’s tacky,misleading,insulting ‘cute’ ads…! After suffering through the 2010 Kalamazoo fiasco and the horse whipping by the US NTSB….you’d think that someone at Enbridge would have demonstrated a much more ‘consulting’ approach..but no; “ here’s OUR (dumb)plan ..we’re in charge” !!
Our latest wannabe pipe-liner (Kinder Morgan)also avoided offering their proposal for early discussion with local citizens and communities..unbelievable…leaving BC with an even dumber proposal !
BCer’s often are portrayed as ‘lotus lander,tree hugging hippies—or worse!…like ‘Newfies’ ,we enjoy the jesting …sum of us kan evun reed an’ rite !
Yes, we know that Mr. Harper has ‘signalled’ that he can declare these pipelines to be in the ‘National Interest’..and order them to be built..! …Not to worry..fortunately ,we can let the real NEB (National Election Ballot)decide .. and help the NEW bunch in Ottawa to ‘fix’ the BC pipelines mess !
