This nearsightedness seems to be a selected condition of Enbridge people, that they'd like to infect BC politicians with. We cannot believe that even Liberal politicians, so used to scamming the public and voters of BC, would allow themselves to be scammed by Enbridge so blatantly. Do they have something in common: that they are both unable to be truthful?
The problem in this 21st century of high tech, is that the truth is now available to the unwashed masses and we can all see it. And dispute a myopic view of it.
Do you see a straight out to sea channel here? Called a Northern Gateway route flyover, it must have been in a Yellow Submarine after a few puffs of British Columbia kelp in a corn cob pipe!
Do you see a straight out channel on Google Earth? Neither do I. And that is a satellite picture. Something you can check for yourself very easily.
(Google Earth is a free download - here - Google Earth download - it is a useful, fun and educational tool if somehow you've just emerged into the 21st century and are not familiar with it.)
It can also be used to dispute and expose nefarious and deceitful actions and claims by unscupulous corporations. Do you see the same channel to the sea that Enbridge shows?
If you believe that the Enbridge representation is a faithful rendition of what the Alberta tar sands oil will pass through on its way to China, then go back to your booth at the Trekkies reunion and hope Spok smiles at you. Their representation is about as faithful to the real as Walt`s Mickey is to a real mouse.
Otherwise if you are a sane person of some intelligence, help to expose these people for what they are by passing this on. You won't need glasses. Even those 'special' ones Enbridge people use. Is this because they can't see straight? Or is it the gang that couldn't shoot straight?
Perhaps it's because they just can't lie straight.
Far sightedness is a state of mind.
addenda: Prime Minister Harper has disallowed an NDP member from bringing evidence about Enbridge's oil spill in Kalamazoo to the upcoming Edmonton hearings, adding to the speculation that Harper will try to push through the pipeline over the objections of British Columbians.
