NEB CHANGES REQUIRED

Fortuitously, we’ve just witnessed  democracy in action — WHERE ,the ultimate public hearing, the NATIONAL ELECTION BALLOT (NEB) made the logical decision…..   to review these publically unacceptable,ill-conceived, bitumen transport plans—by Enbridge and Kinder Morgan …Most  would like to see a scheme where the threat of bitumen spills in our billion dollar tourist businesses ,in those environmentally sensitive areas,are minimized.. or eliminated .. Stay  out of Douglas Channel,Burrard Inlet and the Salish Sea ..this easily done !

A BC PIPELINES SOLUTION…

http://blogs.theprovince.com/2015/08/17/david-akin-mulcair-needs-to-tip-toe-through-the-pipeline-issue/

As David Atkin notes in his editorial  ….” either Mulcair …. believes there is a way  to bring Alberta crude to Pacific tidewater while protecting the environment….OR ..?

….. FORTUNATELY, THERE IS A SENSIBLE WAY….to do that..

BC’ ,carefully managed , export and import facilities..already  accept  significant associated risk.. .AND BC SHOULD NOT BE PRESSED TO ACCEPT  ,these badly conceived,publically UNACCEPTABLE   projects.

BITUMEN LADEN TANKER TRAFFIC , would  impact,UNNECESSARILY,   our  multibillion-dollar environmentally related revenue generating BUSINESSES ,in the  island-bound Douglas Channel ,tricky island passes in the Salish   Sea , and the  busy Vancouver Harbour….

The NEB have already identified 354 conditions(deficiencies) in the ENBRIDGE and KINDER MORGAN  proposals. A more acceptable tanker routing plan would see ONE PIPELINE SYSTEM  from Alberta to Port Simpson …and maybe a refinery , with those good paying jobs ?

Someone needs to lead…please !
