TransCanada’s Energy East Pipeline is Too Much Risk for the Bay of Fundy

Matthew Abbott

The Energy East Pipeline project, a proposal of Alberta-based TransCanada Corporation, would make gamblers of us all.

A single tanker spill of oilsands bitumen in the Bay of Fundy — currently the only export harbour for the cross-country bitumen pipeline — could irreparably damage the two industries that have been the cornerstone of the economy in this region for generations: fisheries and tourism.

Since China serves as the industrial engine of the world and its economy has entered into a tailspin (or serious "correction") demand for commodities has gone down so much so that oil is now selling for less than $40 a barrel.

What this means is at least two-fold:

First, global demand for oil is down.

Second, costly production operations make no sense in this particular economic downturn.

I hope this form of Shock Doctrine wake-up call stops the Energy & Environmental high-tech rapists... and that the magnificent whales will maintain control of THEIR peaceful domain.

I was just in New Bruswick last mos. I'd be sorry to see such a beautiful place trashed by these greedy f*ckers. Is there nowhere they can't stick their greasy hands?
