… the First Nation will …. defend itself against this ‘review process’ .. “The purpose of the NEB is to regulate pipelines… in the Canadian public interest.” ‘
The NEB has denied many from appearing as interveners …including the US EPA which has scientific data http://www.seas.gwu.edu/~dorpjr/VTRA/PSP/FINAL%20REPORT/PSP%20FINAL%20REPORT%20-%20DRAFT%20012214%20-%20HQ.pdf that suggests increased risks of bitumen spills in our adjoining (Canada/US)waters—BECAUSE of the ever increasing shipping/tanker traffic—Surely our National Energy Board would be interested ..in the Canadian public interest ?
VTRA EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
“… the Salish Sea …. bordering numerous communities en route to
ports in both the US and Canada…characterized by passages …
that are navigationally challenging …. a biologically rich
ecosystem …these communities depend upon.”
The Kinder Morgan, UNNECESSARY,twinning pipeline twinning project—and the POORLY LOCATED Enbridge Northern Gateway systems ,need FIXING !
Alberta needs to market it’s growing bitumen production —so build one smart pipeline system (in a corridor) from Alberta to Port Simpson—giving wide open access to world markets…
Our Prime Minister could LEAD by directing the NEB to review this new scheme and FIX the BC pipelines mess..that’s what leaders do—LEAD !
