Yesterday’s social media coverage of a small Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Pipeline Leak, north of Kamloops, at the company’s Darfield station, had Kamloops Thompson Cariboo M.P Cathy McLeod, shaking her head.
Total distortions from well known critics of the proposed twinning of that line.
“We know that this was minor in nature. And I would hope that anyone that posted on social media would actually be reasoned, and measured in terms of what they said. And obviously that wasn’t true with some of the things that were out there. And it’s quite simply, wrong.”
McLeod noting, what B.C’s Ministry of Environment is reporting that only 100 litres of crude, dripped on to the ground yesterday, and that no waterways were impacted, which was anything but the social media pipeline critics were claiming.
Of course, later this week, Thursday is the deadline for a Kinder Morgan final decision on whether the company will forge ahead with plans to twin the Tran Mountain line, amid the B.C Government’s continued opposition to the venture.
