Re: "March intended to show expanding opposition to Enbridge proposal," Oct. 26.
Whenever the hollow assurances of "pipeline safety" are brought up by oilsands-pipeline proponents, it should be noted that there can never be true pipeline safety, nor anything near it. One need only consider what a major tectonic-plate shift - which B.C. is overdue to experience - of even just a metre, with the fault zone land shifting in opposing directions, would do the strength of, as a good example, the proposed Northern Gateway twin pipelines. They'd breach, to put it mildly, leaving behind detrimental environmental consequences, very potentially throughout countless pristine and eco-sensitive regions of B.C.
Then, of course, there's also the issue of our northern coast and its waters that are at risk by giant oil-tankers.
