This spells disasterin CAPITAL letters. Don't allow them and get better prepared, cause it WILL happen!

To be trite I say they are" putting the cart before the horse" only cliche meaning
as I would be opposed to a horse hauling the cart as well, as I am strongly opposed to this whole set up.
The Partlows said it; an accident waiting to happen .(actually a disastrous accident)

Noted. It looks like those in charge have brains that have turned to mush.

Holy Smokes, the disaster plans need to be quickly updated, but will that happen in time?

As Tasunka says, "they are putting the cart before the horse", which means they are playing with fire. A catastrophe is bound to happen and although they know it, they take no serious measure either to prevent it, or to limit its effect. I am flabbergasted when Iread what they intend to do: play with the survival of animals, with the health of people, etc. etc.

Harper only cares about his oil profit, and not about us Canadians.

Just remember the "Valdez." These men have cotton for brains.

Haven't we had enough oil spills already? Let's turn the conversation back to clean energy!

All about oil and never about the environment and Canadians. This government is completely out of touch with the people.
