“The reason that it’s concerning, I’d say, is the sheer number of violations...” And they want to let these clowns build more pipelines? Look at the environmental disasters they've created in Minnesota, Michigan and elsewhere. They are a completely irresponsible company!

The only jobs created by the pipeline across Minnesota will be when all of the oil spills start occurring and need to be cleaned up. Unfortunately no one knows how to clean up tar sand spills. You can just ask the people in Arkansas and Michigan.

The global impacts of climate change and the risks of another spill like the one Enbridge had in the Kalamazoo river are both really important. People should also look at the implications for people who live near tar sands production. In fact, the Alberta regulator finally was made to admit by force of scientific fact that the plans to expand production that these pipelines are to serve will have irreversible effects on ecosystems and on First Nations rights. Look at the cancer rates in Fort Chippewa. It's just that the conservative governments of Alberta and Canada care more about private profits than those things and are going to approve the expansions anyway. It's the 21st century. The time has come to live in harmony with the earth.
