Why Enbridge`s Northern Gateway Pipeline Will Never Be Built, Even If It Means War In The Woods


Russian oil tanker splits in half

Up to 2,000 metric tons of fuel oil have leaked near the Black Sea after a Russian oil tanker split in half.

It came apart after it was smashed by 108km/h (67 mph) winds and 5m (16ft) waves in the Kerch Strait between the Azov and Black Seas. Four other ships sank in the storm, some of them carrying dangerous cargos, and several more were in trouble. The tanker's 13 crew were rescued after several hours, but more than 20 were reported missing from the other ships. Dozens of vessels have reportedly been evacuated from the busy Russian commercial port of Kavkaz because of the storm. 'Sinking to seabed' The broken oil tanker, the Volganeft-139, was at anchor when its stern tore apart in Ukrainian waters on the busy waterway dividing that country and Russia, officials said.
A regional prosecutor told local media the tanker was designed in the Soviet era to transport oil on rivers and was not meant to withstand heavy storms. Another official told the BBC that almost half of the ship's cargo of more than 4,000 tons of fuel oil had been spilt. Russian environmentalist Vladimir Slivyak told local media the tanker accident was a "very serious environmental disaster". The heavy oil was sinking to the seabed and could take years to clean up, he said. But the oil spill is small by comparison with the Prestige disaster off Spain five years ago. Severe habitat damage was caused to beaches in Spain, France and Portugal when a tanker leaked 64,000 tons of fuel oil in November 2002. Three other vessels that sank in Sunday's storm were carrying thousands of tons of sulphur. Meanwhile, 15 crew members were reportedly missing from a scrap metal ship that sank 300km (187 miles) further west, near Sevastopol on Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula. Yet more ships ran aground or slipped anchor and drifted at the mercy of the storm.

A second oil tanker was being monitored closely because its hull had developed cracks.


Janet Holder, you can`t give any assurances, your company Enbridge has admitted your pipeline will leak and burst, and you Janet Holder will take no responsibility for any oil supertanker spill...

And the truth be told...You Janet Holder and Enbridge have made Northern Gateway Pipeline a limited liability company completely separate from Enbridge`s assets, in other words you Janet Holder and Enbridge have no faith in the project and refuse to put Enbridge`s assets on the line..

Oh, one more thing Janet Holder...Northern Gateway Pipeline is already nearly 50% owned by China and once it is built you and Enbridge are selling the pipeline and terminal lock stock and barrel to China...

"It’s no accident that China’s four major government owned oil companies are investing in the development of Enbridge’s Northern Gateway Pipeline.  It’s an old story:  first buy the oil then buy the pipeline. 

 Its happened in Russia, in Myanmar, in Kurdistan.
So it’s no surprise that the Chinese investment in Northern Gateway comes with a price related to China’s oil security. 

In return for China’s investment Enbridge will provide the Chinese companies with a secure spot on the pipeline for their oil as well as options to purchase an ownership share in the pipeline when it’s built."


I have three words for you Janet Holder,Stephen Harper and Enbridge. you can quote me..

"Go To Hell"

I found this sometime back.

Enbridge has chosen a limited partnership-is to limit the exposure of investors of the company, not to make good on a catastrophic spill.

If this is indeed true? We are up against absolute monsters. Harper of course, is supreme monster overseeing of all of his atrocities.

The environmental risk and GHG from either pipeline or rail is 10 times more than value added industry that will produce 10 times as many jobs.
The argument of which will serve Canadians best, a pipeline or rail is over. The clear winner is value added industry.
