    The Enbridge pipeline suggest that a refinery be built at the port of loading. That would mean if there was a rupture in the pipeline all the heavy oil would sink to the bottom of the fish spawning beds.
    Now if the refinery was built on Alberta and a rupture occurred it would be lighter oil and float to the top until the leak was arrested.

    I'm an advocate of all three pipelines and lets get some of that refinery profit flowing to B.C. -- After all it's lighter oil that is more friendly and it runs through B.C. so why should Alberta reap all the profits? Just because lighter oil works better.

    Get that natural gas line to Kitimat going NOW!
