not so much….I care about the big picture too.
The pipe is coming, our job is to see it done right. The douglas channel is a non issue,everyone knows that. Shipping aluminum out of kitimat is no less an enviro issue, but it happens a few times a week(bauxite also comes in fwiw) with no issue.
BTW,you mentioned the qotn.
did it ever sail into the "dangerous Douglas channel"?
right so enbridge basicly has been saying "this is what we are gona do and its the safest thing ever" and then a year later they say "now this is what we are gona do and its the safest thing ever" … wait a minute wasn't what you offered a year ago the safest thing?
So you have the oil industry which is supported by harper paying off his buddies by making it EASY, realisticaly Enbridge is not going to do any more than they are made to do
And you got the 1st nations who were never paid off in their land claims making it HARD as they can
royal dutch shell had tenure to do CBM up in iskut ,the Thaltan thru them out … it ain't over till the fat lady sings
yer now 400kms further west than you were its a whole different ball game, the town/provincial/federal politics is all left due in large part or completely because of the 1st nations who have the land claim
queen of the north was out at the end of the douglas channel a small ship/human error not the same as running 250 very large tankers per year full of bitumen
