Dispelling myths of Kinder Morgan “pipeline politics”

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator
 

Now that Trudeau and the Liberals have approved the Kinder Morgan pipeline, I thought I’d share some of the myths and outright lies opponents of the project have been using with those outside BC and Alberta who may not be as familiar with “pipeline politics”. 

The disinformation doesn’t only come from environmental groups but sometimes even politicians like Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson.

Watch as I run through just a few of the myths or misleading facts that have been told over the last three years and set the record straight.

I expect the disinformation campaign from environmental groups will ramp up in the coming months as this project gets closer to construction so it’s best to be prepared!

Re tanker traffic, nobody seems to mention that most of Alaska’s oil output already travels by tanker through Juan de Fuca Strait to supply US Refineries at Cherry Point and Anacortes in Washington, and has been doing so for decades without incident.
Perhaps Elizabeth May or Gregor Robertson would like to put a stop to that?

Mayor Moonbeam will probably get defeated next election. Several surveys done over the past year asked Vancouverites what was their biggest concern and they have repeatedly stated Housing and the price of real estate as the # 1 concern. In the last survey done a few months ago over 60% said Housing was the biggest concern and only 4% said pipelines. Robertson pushing anti-pipeline rhetoric is now being labelled ‘distraction politics" in Vancouver because people are furious that in 7 years he has done nothing to address the housing crisis , mainly because of his close relationship with developers. The majority of people see him for what he truly is – an opportunistic weasel with close connections to Tides International who fund anti-Canadian protest groups. Scratch below the surface and you’ll probably find the $300,000 spent on the anti-pipeline website was probably funded by George Soros and Tides International.
Robertson has no more credibility in Vancouver, he’s done.

Another Question: How long does it take to fill an oil tanker?

Remember Tides and the like That fund the treehugger eco terrorist out fits for hire, who attack Alberta’s energy industry. Well guess where a lot of the money has been coming from. “Kellogg’s”. Join the Breitbart boycott against Kellogg’s, and lets have some revenge. As under every liberal dirt pile as of late, we find Gorge Soros again.

Kellogg Foundation Gave Big to Soros Organization, Tides Foundation

Earl Richards commented 1 hour ago
No toxic, tar sands for BC, because there is no equipment to clean-up a spill. It takes only one spill to destroy BC. Remember Enbridge’s, Kalamazoo River disaster. To understand the destructiveness of a tar sands spill, Google and read, “Michigan oil spill effects could be repeated here”, by Michelle Barlond-Smith.

Just more nonsense. Oil natural breaks down in water and is consumed by microbes. If it didn’t, the oceans lakes and rivers would have been black millions of years ago from all the natural seeps.

Earl Richards you are pretty idiotic. I will make you a deal, i will stand in bitumen if you stand in the raw sewage they are dumping. See which is more toxic.

WILSON , good one

You need to talk to TOM FLETCHER of black press
Alaskan crude tankers travel the bc coast for 50years
Port of Vancouver sees 5000 vessels a year. All carrying bunker fuel
If trans mountain goes through 6200 vessels , only420 would be carrying Canadian crude

TOM is a bc legislature reporter , been around for a long time

Are you shittin me!!!! All this noise is about going from 1 ship a month to 1 ship a week? You need to run this piece once a month until oil is flowing in the new pipe.
Thanks Christopher, this is just what I thought was going on.
