The Harper era ‘ public hearings’ failed…because no one the public !
Now,  the new bunch..promises to listen and use science before deciding…In the interim,the Liberal government  decided to ‘rejig’ the NEB and hopefully come up ,quickly,with a publically  acceptable scheme for transport of Alberta bitumen to world markets………
Examples of  ‘main’ BC public concerns…
1.operator/design error,
2.deliberate act to cause damage,create havoc,
3.major bitumen tanker spill,
4.earthquake damage and consequences..etc.,
So far,science was all but ignored..
Let  the Liberals make the common sense decision to build just one bitumen pipeline system …after tabling an expert,independent risk assessment that suggests a better,’less damaging’ ocean  terminal location…in the National Interest..
