Enbridge proposed, in May 2010 , to build a pipeline from Alberta to Kitimat BC … which required bitumen laden tankers to travel ,unnecessarily, through some of BC’ environmentally sensitive waters .
No doubt,BC public opinion was tainted by the infamous ,July 2010 ,Michigan,Enbridge pipeline failure .Contributing to the ‘non-decision’ was the
Enbridge failure to convince anyone that they cared !
Years have passed,that government is GONE,and the pipeline… a dream only .
The new Federal government leader who has promised,ceaselessly, to listen and let science help us decide… … just platitudes ……For instance,he publically ‘decided that the Kinder Morgan, Trans Mountain Expansion Project (TMEP)is HIS choice!!!!
THEN ‘decision’ two. By banning tankers in BC’ northern waters, he effectively KILLED the Enbridge Northern Gateway project..without any public involvement..or science !..These’ TOO HASTY’ DECISIONS, are concerning !
Does Kinder Morgan have the ‘green light’ to build their ill-conceived pipeline system…Seems so,the Supreme Leader has decided !
Yes there are simpler,more acceptable options to build a smarter pipeline system…that the BC public could accept..if publically and professionally debated !
