Do Enbridge and Kinder Morgan pipelines and tankers make CENTS for British Columbia?

I received this email from Forest Ethics to share:

Dear Eldy,British Columbians have been pretty clear that the environmental risks of the proposed Enbridge and new Kinder Morgan pipeline are just too high to bear. But what about the financial risks?Robyn Allen, former CEO of the ICBCOne of the leading voices on the economic impacts of new pipelines and tankers to BC’s economy is Robyn Allen, the former CEO of the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia. While many of us focus on the environmental threat posed by these projects, Robyn has used her experience as an economist to challenge Enbridge’s and Kinder Morgan’s claims that pipelines are good for business. In fact, she has demonstrated that the economic risks of these pipeline and tanker projects far outweigh the limited benefits.That is why we are excited to invite you to hear Robyn speak at The Economics of Oil Pipelines and Tankers. This event will be held at theConfederation Center in Burnaby—near the Kinder Morgan tar sands oil tanker terminal—on March 27th from 7pm to 9pm. 

ForestEthics Advocacy is proud to be partnering with Simon Fraser University’s Institute for the Humanities, the Environment Committee of the Unitarian Church of Vancouver, and Burnaby Residents Opposing Kinder Morgan Expansion to make this vital topic open for discussion.

There is a lot of interest in this event and seating is limited—so pleaseRSVP NOW so we can save you a seat!

Join us for The Economics of Oil Pipelines and Tankers

Join us to find out how these proposals stack up economically.



This sounds like it will be a real eye-opener for many who still believe that pipelines and tar sands are economically a good idea for our future.  We already know of the environmental down side.  I am so glad that Forest Ethics is on the case!
