Tag Archive 'Enbridge Pipeline'

I have some questions for Premier Clark. Premier, I’m a simple man who by nature asks simple questions. You and Alberta premier Redford have evidently agreed that there will be a pipeline from her province through ours to the sea and that BC will make some money out of this deal. Is this the end […]

Here are three things to remember about Premier Clark and the Enbridge pipeline: 1. She did not reject the pipeline – she simply said that Enbridge had not met BC’s conditions. 2.

The news out of the Joint Review Panel looking into the Enbridge pipeline should have a profound effect on us all.

To recap, The pipeline proposed runs 1,100 kms. through the Rockies, the Rocky Mountain Trench, through the Coast Range getting to the ocean at Kitimat thence by tanker through the Douglas Channel to […]

We are treated by Enbridge to full page ads extolling the pipeline company’s devotion to the environment and safety. They are, dear fellow British Columbians, not to be believed, as I propose now to demonstrate. Using data from Enbridge’s own reports, the Polaris Institute reports that 804 spills occurred on Enbridge pipelines between 1999 and 2010. […]

Gordon Gibson used to be Liberal until he fell in with those proponents of consensual slavery, The Fraser Institute. While I find myself in great sorrow saying this, Gibson has become a all out capitalist suck. Witness his article today on the op-ed page of the Globe and Mail as he talks about David Black’s […]
