This Kitimat/Douglas Channel ,environmentally precious location ,borders on the sacred—Recall,when the press quoted Mr. Prentice and Mr. Al Monaco,President/CEO Enbridge , when each mused about ‘leaving’ Douglas Channel— was that a KNOWING ‘gut feeling’ –-that Enbridge chose to ignore ?
Now comes time for action ;
“….would (Mr. Prentice) take a direct role in negotiating with chiefs …. I’m not going to get into that today(if not Mr. Prentice,then who?) – our prosperity ….depends on our ABILITY TO ACCESS WORLD MARKETS.”
Premier Jim Prentice and Premier Christy Clark …should advise Mr. Harper that it’s time for action…. Ask Mr. Harper to instruct NEB to order pipe line and shipping route changes….in the Canadian Public Interest !
Southern BC folk are reacting strongly to Kinder Morgan’ pipeline twinning project—because they fear consequences of increasing bitumen shipping volumes in southern,busy shipping waters.
What’s required is a shipping route,with a supporting world class independent ,expert risk-analysis study that shows the reduced probability bitumen spills…with a ONE PIPELINES SYSTEM concept,,that gives Alberta the ABILITY TO ACCESS WORLD MARKETS.
