Selective oil bashing

Politically motivated environment groups' intentions questioned.

Trans Mountain Oil Pipeline has been transporting oil from Edmonton to Burnaby and Washington State through Sumas, for the past 62 years. It is only recently that the politically motivated environment groups were aware of it.

This pipeline empties into three oil-storage terminals; one in Burnaby, and two in Washington State. It is only when Trans Mountain Oil Pipeline owner, Kinder Morgan, proposed an expansion from 300 barrels per day to 800 barrels per day that they first noticed. That is how good its safety record is.

Don’t you find it strange  that these foreign -based environment groups have a lot to say bout B.C. -based oil pipelines such as the Trans Mountain Oil Pipeline, while ignoring oil being exported from Valdez, Alaska and Cherry Point, Washington in the U.S.? Whose interests are they protecting?
