Canadian Behavior?

If this is how they behave in Canada, there is no way we could possibly hold a Shark Week up there...

I have never heard of such rudeness!

They weren't Canadian, they were protesters!

Being from the oil producing province of Alberta and deriving the income for my companies directly from the exploration, production and shipping of oil, we tend to view protesters as "a little lower than a snakes belly in a wagon rut".

Interesting point is how do they get to these protests? Wind powered sail cars, solar powered bicycles? No in most cases they show up in an old smoke belching diesel powered two stroke jimmy bus, slightly ironic that they want to protect the environment from oil companies yet rely on them for transportation to protest them.

Oil transported by pipeline is still the safest way to move the commodity over land. It is controlled, stored and moved most efficiently that way. It takes far less carbon input to move oil by pipeline than by rail, truck or even barges.

Like it or not, the world is hooked on the consumption of oil. Emerging nations such as China, India, Brazil who are leaping into mass consumerism are demanding more and more natural resources. The demand for oil is increasing everyday. The safest way to transport it overland is by pipeline.

No matter how safe you make something the limiting factor is always human error. I believe this is what you will find is the root cause in almost all disasters involving petroleum products.

Ok, off the soapbox now and returning to your regular Canuck humor!

Yeah, but do they stick Beer Cans to their foreheads while they protest?

2 stroke Jimmie buses tend to be a pretty safe mode of transport. Problem with transporting oil in one is that all your product tends to leak out before you get there......
