As Opposition Builds, is Energy East Tar Sands Pipeline 'Dead in the Water'?

Deirdre Fulton, staff writer

Elected officials across Canada are locking horns over TransCanada's proposed Energy East tar sands pipeline, after the Montreal Metropolitan Community, which represents 82 municipalities, decided unanimously to fight the project because its economic benefits for Quebec would pale in comparison to the possible clean-up costs of a spill.

Won't this be the very definition of irony:Canadians can successfully block the sludge pipes through Canada but Americans can be forced to allow them because Clinton's Shafta Treaty makes our environmental laws illegal.

You might be giving Trans Canada an idea.

Solution. Incorporate in the USA.

Sue Canada under Nafta provision 11.

I participated online in the Energy East public consultation. I carefully read all the documentation TransCanada provided. What was very noticeable was the complete lack of information in several key areas. TransCanada came to a public hearing without enough information to honestly answer the public. What hubris! So while the media and much of the public are all a' rantin' now about Quebec's thumbs down, it is worth noting that Energy East information was not provided to the public, and the claim that the regulatory process is broken appears to be valid. TransCanada and the regulatory folks need look no further than themselves for these failures.

Watch these bastards; they will bring out every dirty trick that ever existed to get their way and pump that earth-killing crude gunk to the world
