Editor: While I support anyone’s right to protest perceived or real dangers to one’s life and living, regarding the K.M. recent protest, who’s paying the bills?

It is a well documented fact that some factions in the US are against Canadian oil going to a market currently controlled by the US.

Recent yearly sales are in the $40 billion range.
A thorough investigation of “facts” show that the transportation of oil and gas products in mandatory regulated double hull cargo ships is one of the safest means of transportation, to date one incident with no leakage to the ocean, and not in port.

Pipelines are the heaviest regulated construction in Canada, sales relate to taxes for our province.
