B.C. economy will experience a big benefit from pipeline expansion

Project will result in a continued boom for three years

The time has come for the pipeline protestors to start facing the facts about the Kinder Morgan pipeline.

The pipeline has been in existence since 1953. Kinder Morgan wants to twin the pipeline. Kinder Morgan will pay the B.C. government $25 to $50 million per year for a period of 20 years once the new dual pipeline is in operation.

Protestors, remember that this money is your money by way of the government bank account, or taxpayers’ bank account in reality. Your provincial government is only the managers of this bank account.

Protestors must realize that work camps are no longer popular and are only located where the construction is not near a town or city. This means that all hotel rooms will be filled with construction workers, restaurants will be much busier than normal, parts store, equipment rentals, machine shops, mechanical shops, etc. will all be part of the boom due to construction from the Alberta border all the way to Burnaby, B.C.

Three years of continued boom. Most of the wages earned on the project will be union wages.

Also Kinder Morgan has noted that once the additional tanker traffic begins, all tankers will have tug boat escorts all the way out to the open ocean waters. Not once has a protestor mentioned anything about the tug boat escort.

Yes, an accident could always happen, but a marriage can end in divorce, and a plane could also crash.
