so i have been following this issue for a little while now http://www.northerngateway.ca/
it appears that enbridge is basically feeding the same old shit to us. i live in fort st john and work in the oil and gas industry and i see daily what the oil companies are doing to the environment. an example of this is right now a single company is pulling 7,000,000 liters of fresh water out of the peace river a day that will be pushed downhole and be retrieved and then pumped down a waste well for disposal in only one area that they are drilling.
i have mentioned this pipeline project to friends of mine that work in the industry and they dont even know about it so i can imagine a lot of people down in the valley are very unaware.
it is very true that pipelines rupture, lots, i deal with preventative maintenance (corrosion inhibitor line batches, down hole work etc) and believe me, a lot of companies do the bare minimum, if that, to get by. it is very expensive and cuts down on their bottom line. i know of 5-6 in the fields that i deal with in the last 6 months alone not to mention the others in the last 3 years since ive been here.
heres a video outlining the possibilities of what could happen (similar to exxon valdez, not quite as bad as BP) but if people don't speak up cambell will most likely go for another quick cheque and move to hawaii so we need to make some voices heard so they know its not wanted.
heres a video, its 15 minutes but makes a lot of sense (not sure how to embed videos)
also look at the websites
im sure there are a host of others as well. would like to hear a discussion on this as well in case theres something i missed?
