Federal Liberal propaganda doctors concocted a press release last week pretending that the Liberals are protecting Victoria and Vancouver and the Salish Sea and their inhabitants from a TransMountain bitumen spill. Read between the lines. The Liberals have cut the Canada Coast Guard out of the picture. Western Canada Marine Response Corporation – an outfit owned and operated by the oil companies themselves – good capitalists all WCMRC will spend more time saving money for their owners than really worrying about really cleaning up a real oil spill. Hopefully the Trudeau’s TransMountain Pipeline boondoggle will die a natural death.
Meantime – to really sell Western Oil – the answer is an energy corridor from Fort McMurray to the open Pacific near Prince Rupert. B.C. natives themselves are proposing exactly that – The Eagle Spirit Pipeline. We’d hope they may actually refine bitumen at Fort McMurray and ship product through the Eagle Spirit Pipeline to be marketed throughout the Pacific.
