Pipeline route is safe, says Transport Canada

Winnipeg Free Press -- Huge oil tankers can safely travel in and out of the port of Kitimat, B.C., says a Transport Canada review of Enbridge Inc.'s controversial Northern Gateway project.

The department filed its report on Thursday to the regulatory panel weighing the $5.5-billion proposal, which would see Alberta crude shipped to the West Coast by pipeline and exported to Asian markets via a marine terminal at Kitimat.

"There will always be residual risk in any project," says the report.

jb107,

I didn't realize Trans Canada would be giving the oil Americans (or even selling the oil to at a discount). If they are giving away oil or selling the oil to us at a real discount I am all for it.

I doubt TransCanada is giving the oil to China. It is more likely they are selling it to China, and the Saudi's are going to have to find another market for their oil, like us.

That won't happen unless Osama Obama's fluhed down the toilet this November.If he gets another term the Canadians,understandably,won't wait and will sign on with the Chinese.

The pipeline should be approved, just enforce all regulations properly and fine those breeching them.

I truly belief Nobama is out to destroy the US.
And yes the Executive branch can help the cost @ the pumps w/o SOR... QE4 for one and less regulation and no new taxes on the petrolum industry (really who do you think will pay those taxes Mr. Nobama)?

I think this is the key point: "There will always be residual risk in any project," says the report.

Unless you're ready to give up all the conveniences of modern life, you need oil. If you insist on complete safety in collecting and transporting the oil, be prepared to pay a lot more for it!!
