Vancouver has a refinery. Which (according to the news) is not doing that well. Can the people who can not work there anymore go to Kitimat.http://www.chevron.ca/operations/refining/default.asp
(did that pipeline btw ever cause any damage? )
I don't remember ever hearing about any problems with it and as far as I know the Trans Mountain pipeline only had the one problem when that rocket scientist operating the backhoe decided to dig it up.
The names Kinder Morgan meant nothing to me and I'm guessing they won't mean anything to most other people but I wonder how much that would change if they knew this:
As a company, Kinder Morgan has been in existence only since 1997, when it was founded by billionaire Richard Kinder, the former "enforcer" for Ken Lay's Enron, and another [b]former Enron executive, William Morgan[/b]. Since its founding, KM has been on a buying binge. According to the New York Times (Oct. 17, 2011), KM has made "about 90 acquisitions" of smaller rivals in its short history. A change of ownership can make a huge difference in pipeline safety.
Anything owned by the criminal asshole fucksticks that were in charge of Enron should be shelved before it ever starts and not from a safety perspective but from a criminal one because, you know that someone's gonna get screwed and it won't be the former Enron Execs.
It boggles the mind that these two can now be the principal owners of piplelines all over North America rather than in jail where alot of disgruntled, broke, investors and employees likely think they belong.
An interesting watch if you haven't seen it:http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/enron-th ... -the-room/
