Enbridge is a Canadian success story
Energy company with a long history in Alberta prides itself on environmental stewardshipAfter more than 60 years of history in Alberta, Enbridge is a well-known brand in the province. But that is not the case in British Columbia, where the proposed 1,172-kilome-tre Northern Gateway project plans to flow oil to B.C.'s north-west coast at Kitimat for export to Asia. As a result, explaining the project has been more difficult in B.C., particularly west of Prince George, where there is little knowledge of the oil sector or Enbridge, says company spokesman Paul Stan-way, a former Edmonton Sun publisher and communications director for former premier Ed Stelmach.Read the rest of the corporate position portrayed as news here.
TAYLOR WAY INSTEAD
Comment by Moe Naguib on 4th January 2012
I think Ron Wilton is commenting on the spill in Taylor BC, had the spill destroyed the lives of Taylor Way residents in West Vancouver, you can rest assured things would have been handled much more quickly and to the satisfaction of said residents instead of the satisfaction of ENBRIDGE. Enbridge can wait out mere working mortals, its uncaring executives thumbing their noses at the suffering of working British Columbians who live outside of the Southwestern Zone of excessive subsidization (Greater Vancouver and Victoria).
Harpo singing a different tune?

Patrick Daniel calls himself a "self-proclaimed environmentalist", but he also "rejects the stereotype that he is a successful corporate titan" when he made "$8 million in 2010 in salary, bonuses, stock options and other compensation". I wonder what Daniel's interpretation IS of a successful corporate titan.

Does any thinking person even read the Vancouver Sun anymore?
Another place where Enbridge is well known is Columbia where 300 farmers and their families are still waiting for compensation after Enbridge pipeline ruptures contaminated their land and water supply eleven years ago.
I'm guessing Enbridge is also well known around Kalamazoo Michigan where they not only have not even come close to cleaning up the mess from their twelve hour rupture, they've even denied responsibility for it and now the state and it's affected citizens have been forced to take them to court.
I'll bet there are some people in California where that residential gasline, owned by an Enbridge affiliate, blew up and killed a few people and destroyed their homes a few years ago, are 'familiar' with Enbridge.
Honestly, I don't think any thinking person in BC wants to become 'familiar' with Enbridge because their history and record of spills, cover up and duplicity is 'well known' outside of Alberta.
