Enbridge-CKNW-Harper Spin Machine Unraveled!

Well here we go again, Enbridge has a pipe leaking natural gas into the Gulf of Mexico, thank goodness it isn`t heavy crude oil....

And get this, the sea conditions are too rough to even get divers down to check out and repair, let me remind you the BC Northern coast is the roughest most treacherous coast in the world, there have been hurricane force winds there over a dozen days in the last 6 months alone...

Here are some quotes from Enbridge on their 805 pipeline spill in the last few years..

"U.S. pipeline regulators told Enbridge about the possible leak. A subsequent helicopter over-flight discovered a metre-wide patch of bubbles over the company’s Stingray pipeline, which can carry 560-million cubic feet a day of natural gas from offshore wells in the Gulf of Mexico. The bubbles were found about 100 kilometres from the Louisiana coast."



Enbridge plans to keep the pipeline running until it can get a dive boat in to inspect the pipe – that should happen by week’s end, although it is weather dependent




Enbridge also had oil spill from a pipe in Illinois, which appeared to be related to shoddy construction work by another company, as well as from a different pipe in the Northwest Territories.


 At the same time, Enbridge’s competitor TransCanada Corp. has had leaks and spills from pumping stations along its newly installed Keystone pipeline. 

 Mike Klink, a civil engineer who worked as a contract inspector for the company, has pointed to potentially much more serious problems. In the Journal Star newspaper in Lincoln, Nebraska, he alleged use of “cheap foreign steel that cracked when workers tried to weld it, foundations for pump stations that you would never consider using in your own home, [and] fudged safety tests.”

The Harper/oil company/Ezra Levant spin machine is getting frighteningly  pathetic.....Yesterday Charles(Harper lap dog) Adler had Ezra Levant on his program to spin and lie.....Adler started the segment talking about 300 Chinese workers that are threatening to commit suicide because they haven`t been paid, these workers are employed making electronic parts for Dell, Xbox, Apple, huge corporate companies with $billions in profit that use ruthless Chinese contractors that routinely treat workers like slaves, workers making a couple of $dollars per day....Aldler also talked about how China has poisoned their land, no human rights, Adler talked about a Chinese communist dictatorship that treated humans like slaves and tools...

Adler was wondering why foundations and environmental groups weren`t protesting against China but were protesting and fighting the Northern Gateway pipeline....Cue the music, Then Charles Adler brings Ezra Levant to the microphone...

Ezra Levant then started his spin, his ethical oil spin, Ezra(being quite bright) talked about the need  to open Asian markets, he mentioned that this oil was going to Korea and Singapore, Ezra Levant mentioned several countries....But was funny, Ezra knew what Adler said, so Ezra Levant said at the end that Possibly even sending oil to China!!!!

The truth is, Ezra Levant knows that all the oil from Gateway is going to China, .....A ruthless dictatorship that poisons its people, destroys environments and treats human rights like feces....

 Check out CKNW audio vault, cue up January 10th/2012...The segment takes place at between 8:30 PM and 8:45 PM

Clearly the Federal Conservative big oil spin machine has ramped up to levels never seen in Canada, propaganda at levels only BC Liberals employed...And the spin hasn`t stopped...

At 7:45 AM/January 11/2012 this morning on CKNW`s Philip Til show...Guess who his guest was...Patrick Mooore, a one time member of early Greenpeace, and guess what, he`s defending the tar sands, oil pipelines and oil tankers, Patrick Moore sold out years ago, anything for pockets of money is the new Patrick Moore, he actually made the pathetic claim that the Tar Sands operation was actually "Cleaning the ground"...Making things better, ....Patrick Moore was a sad tired old man who sold out for one reason...

Patrick Moore failed to mention 100`s of square miles of toxic tailing ponds, he failed to mention the spike in cancer rates in that area, or the poisons building up in the Athabasca river, toxins in groundwater, he failed to mention that the tar sands burn enough natural gas everyday to heat 10 million Canadian homes...He failed to mention the thousands of ducks and geese that die every year from just landing on these poisonous tar sand lakes....

The Federal Conservatives are making a big mistake, this propaganda campaign won`t work in British Columbia...We were told spending $billions on a 2 week Olympic spectacle would make us rich, it was a lie, the Olympics lost money and we are still paying for them, we were told the HST would lower prices and create jobs, the BC Liberals lied, the corporate pigs lied, no jobs, higher prices while corporations filled their boots with record profits, our BC Liberal Government lied about Translink...All they need is a little more property tax, a little more gas tax, a little more parking fee money, now Translink needs to raise transit fares to pay the P3 money losing Golden Ears bridge...

Wall Street lied, investment bankers lied, Enbridge lies, TransCanada, the company involved in the Keystone pipeline have shoddy pipes and leaks, the pipeline is new, they call it"teething pains"...I call it corruption..

A super tanker disaster on our North coast can`t be cleaned, it would cost BCers our Orca whales, our salmon, the cost can`t be measured..

This Enbridge pipeline will cost the Federal Conservative Government power, it will also doom the BC Conservatives, the BC Liberals are already dead...Christy Clark is in hiding, she`s been muzzled, actually, she`s been asked to resign...

CKNW has chosen to betray British Columbia and broadcast propaganda and misleading information...

Bill Good has no spine, John Macolm cares only for money, Philip Til is a patsy, Gord MacDonald has zero brains, Sean Leslie cares only for money, every radio voice on CKNW promoted the HST to the bitter end..They promoted the corrupt BC liberals every step of the way, the BC economy, BC Hydro, BC Ferries, tripled our debt, $110 billion in off book debts in the form of IPP`s, P3s, CKNW enabled corruption while providing cover...

Where are you Hiding Christy Clark.....Where is the leadership....

Karma, one day Stephen Harper and Bill Good will be old and drooling, sitting  insoiled underwear...

The healthcare workers will remember...

Every since Harper has had his majority, Canada has steadily gone downhill. There have been no jobs in Canada for 6 months.

I'm not surprised about Christy stepping back. I have noticed, Falcon's mouth is as big as the Grand Canyon, and echos over and over with the same repeated crap.
