Kinder Morgan

Kinder Morgan is a company building a bitumen pipeline from Alberta to Vancouver on the BC coast and from there by tanker the rest of the world. The Canadian federal government and the Alberta provincial government are strongly promoting it on financial and jobs grounds. The BC provincial government is strongly opposed to it on environmental grounds. Alberta has banned some BC imports into Alberta to put pressure on BC. (This is illegal by the constitution. BC has not opposed them, nor taken countermeasures.)

Why is this pipeline a bad idea?

If Premier Notley and Prime Minister Trudeau are so sure there is no danger whatsoever to the environment, let them put up a bond sufficient to compensate for the loss of BC’s fisheries and coast-tourist industry. Notley wants all the benefits for herself and all the risk to go to BC. This is selfish and unreasonable.
