A word of caution for the prime minister of Canada - Don't even think about it.
"It" is the loathed Northern Gateway pipeline initiative designed to transport hazmat sludge, also known as dilbit, from Alberta across the seismically active mountain and river wilderness of northern British Columbia to the pristine coast at Kitimat and then onward to Asia via the Douglas Channel and the treacherous waters of the Johnson and Hecate Straits.
Trudeau said he would never allow the Northern Gateway to go through yet the industry shills who constitute the National Energy Board seem to have other ideas.
The project was thought to be dead -- finished off by a Liberal campaign promise to restore a long-standing moratorium on oil tanker traffic off B.C.'s north coast.
But recent comments by federal Transport Minister Marc Garneau have opponents gearing up to fight the controversial pipeline proposal again.
Speaking to Bloomberg News, Garneau was quoted Monday as saying that the government still hasn't "worked out" what a moratorium on tankers actually means. The article also quoted Garneau as saying it is "premature" to say the Northern Gateway is dead...
And when Trudeau issued mandate letters to his new ministers last November, he earned big headlines and praise from environmentalists for including a moratorium on tankers in his instructions to Garneau.
Some observers contend the Northern Gateway business is a ploy, a scare tactic, so that when that route is officially killed off, British Columbians will be complacent to the Trudeau government's go-ahead on the southern, Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion.
