I see two pipeline stories in today’s Vancouver Sun …
Minister Mary Polack “BELIEVES… Kinder Morgan(KM) has failed to provide …an aderquate plan ..to prevent or respond to..oil spill……”Minister Polack ..and everyone else in BC.,DO NOT WANT TO HEAR…from emergency officials.. ’ a container vessel is stuck in the side of bitumen tanker in Haro Strait…… or…?
Guess what.. Mr. Trudeau… ..already has stated HIS preference for the KM twinning project ! And, he has effectively killed the Enbridge Northern Gateway project ..with his ban on oil tanker traffic in northern BC waters… !
Mr. Prime Minister, give your ‘so loved’ scientists a chance to demonstrate that ONE smarter pipeline could be built..to handle both the Enbridge and Kinder Morgan flows with ease…simply, by SCIENTIFICALLY locating a marine route that MINIMIZES THE PROBABILITY of a bitumen spill in BC ‘ most environmentally sensitive waters !
Let’s assume that your Climate Change advisors,when searching for a new Vancouver airport location ,would choose a location that MINIMIZES THE PROBABILITY of a Boeing 747 ,landing at Granville and Georgia..
Just plain common sense.. !!
