Opponents need to think about future
I am appalled by the many frivolous law suits filed against the Northern Gateway pipeline project by various interest groups. If these groups had lived in the 1850 era when the Canadian Pacific Railway tunnels were chiselled through the Rocky Mountains, and when the Trans Canada Highway, the longest in the World today, was built neither would have seen the light of day. We would still be living in the horse and buggy days today.
Think of how many things these resources are used for. Gasoline, oil and diesel for transportation, building materials, clothing and countless other items we use today.
What if these conveniences were cut off to us even for a short while? Yet, how stable is the supply we get from Iraq?
The Gateway Pipeline allows Canada to become an Energy Super Power by pumping an estimated 525,000 barrels of oil each day, establish self sufficiency, more jobs and vastly improved economic conditions.
Developing natural resources is called progress. They are put there to be used wisely, not to be disregarded.
