Letter: Langley must watch Kinder Morgan pipeline closely

Dear Editor,

Kinder Morgan’s plans are created to benefit Kinder Morgan – just follow the money.

Until we have corporations with a mandate to serve the highest and best interests of the public and the planet, we need to watch them closely and intervene as necessary. Council needs to accept that responsibility on behalf of Langley Township.

Many are becoming knowledgeable about the hazards we face, and believe that the interests of Canada’s regulatory National Energy Board have been captured by the industry.

Highly acclaimed independent pipeline critic David Ellis claims that the “aggressive, intrusive, and offensive proposal of Kinder Morgan to ‘twin’ their antiquated and failing 61-year-old pipeline with a massive 36-inch pipeline to carry tar sands oil to B.C. [and] the continued use of the ramshackle and rotten 61-year-old pipeline is an offense to Canadians who know that a major spill is now imminent… Future oil spills, are a given.”

Valerie McIntyre, Langley
