Re: "In PR game, Kinder Morgan fumbles ball," column by Keith Baldrey, the Now, Nov. 11.
I wish Kieth Baldrey would stop confusing the public with misinformation that Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Oil Pipeline is a bitumen oil carrier. This is totally false; It carries refined oil products from the North Saskatchewan River oil refinery in the City of Edmonton.
It is proposed Northern Gateway Oil Pipeline that would carry diluted bitumen to the West Coast in one pipeline, and then returns the dilution back east to its original source. It was opposition to the Kinder Morgan Oil Pipe Line that cost the NDP the last election. The NDP still doesn’t get it, and neither does columnist Keith Baldrey.
It is not peaceful demonstration against Kinder Morgan at its work site that is the problem. The problem is the obstruction and intimidation of workers at their job site in Burnaby. It is only a matter of time until these anti-development obstructionist are removed bodily from this legitimate work area. The workers are entitled to a safe working environment, like other workers take for granted. Is that too much to ask?
