Letters: Trust Enbridge to build safe jobs

Dear Editor,

Would B.C. be better or worse off with approval of the Northern Gateway project? 

As a B.C. resident, I have pondered the thought of this pipeline coming through our beloved province. Would there be measures put in place to ensure safe transportation of crude oil? Are the economic benefits going to benefit the many ordinary taxpaying citizens of B.C.? 

With unemployment at an all-time low, the project will open up many new job opportunities for B.C. residents. 

The company’s caption of “work safe not harder” goes to show they believe it’s important that everyone returns home safe to their loved ones. This gives reassurance that the employees of Enbridge will be treated well, with the right to refuse unsafe work. 

Enbridge has proved that it is a world-class company and is well established. 

Enbridge is in no rush to start its multibillion-dollar project, and by taking every precaution needed to meet all the requirements in an environmentally safe and sustainable way, it will be able to preserve B.C.’s sought-after environmental beauty. 

I feel confident that the Northern Gateway project will be both beneficial and profitable for B.C and its residents.

Saskia Goodacre, Langley
