Enbridge to Prince Rupert makes sense


As we continually get bombarded with commercials highlighting the benefits of this pipeline and how they are there to protect nature, I still have this burning question that I just can't get past.

Has no one looked at a map of B.C. lately?

Why would you want to end the pipeline at Kitimat and then take a long and narrow path out to open ocean when you could just carry on the pipeline a short distance to the Skeena River near Prince Rupert?

From this location there is a closer and direct path to open ocean.

It seems absurd that Enbridge should risk taking a ship through such narrow channels from Kitimat, putting the entire B.C. coast in peril of an oil spill, when they could easily navigate the waters near Prince Rupert.
