    rivers from coast to coast of British Columbia. Government almost always sides with business. The Canadian Enbridge pipeline is a very real possibility. BC has a right wing government that has sold out much of the province already.

    •  Yes, exactly. (0+ / 0-)

      almost always sides with business.

      There are 2 bitumen pipeline routes proposed, if they both get nixed, it pretty much squashes the Tar sands.

      I really doubt that will happen. Deals to provide ownership shares to Indians are not a new way of greasing the rails.

      It may be that Canada favors a domestic terminal from which to export bitumen, vs.   one in Texas. If so, then Enbridge would the favorite. And Keystone the sacrificial lamb.

      We shall see.

      •  There is a ban on tankers on the West Coast (0+ / 0-)

        They must be counting on lifting the ban. This oil is for China. We have committed ecocide in our own country to help feed China's hunger for oil.

        After the pipeline cuts across the Province and endangers the rivers it ends up at Kitmat, an inland port where it endangers the Kitimat River.  There is already an Alcan smelter up there.
