“Let them build it up and then impose a capital tax”

“Better yet, an un-deployed capital tax. If it is deployed it goes to work in the economy or, if it is distributed to share holders or "attributed" to the income of CEOs annually, it becomes taxable and the revenues are used in the economy.”

“Better yet, impose a special capital tax that's limited to "dead capital" so there's an incentive to spend it and not do the corporate thing and shift the money to a tax haven.”

“So you are willing to take the chance ,because the future not quantified.I will accept the pipeline under one condition,that Enbridge ,the NEB and the oil lobby will submit to criminal prosecution and jail time should there be tanker accident,including forfeit of all capital resources and be under contract for said forfeiture.Would they have enough confidence to actually put their own asses on the line?”

“I'm good with that condition. I'd like to also suggest that they must put a billion dollars in a government trust, to be spent at the government's discretion should a major incident occur.
I completely agree with holding the profiters accountable to the risk.
I don't agree with exagerating the risk to create fear.”

“I challenge you to make an honest attempt at quantifying the probability of a major pipeline leak, or tanker spill.
There are plenty of resources available on the internet, independent studies, government studies, privately funded studies. They all have numbers, and they can all be used to help you understand the real probability.”

“As someone living in BC the clearly majority local opinion is that this will never happen.Nobody will sign on to the almost inevitable disaster ,given the local conditions and the amount of traffic contemplated,let alone the legal issues and the social resistance which will be fierce.This coast is our economy in a nutshell and we won't trust it to some oil company and there corporate shills.”

“"almost inevitable" = "remote possibility"”

“I agree it won't happen and the corporate shills are already planning to ship the oil to the east where they believe control of resources belongs.”
“I love it when death row inmates "find God" and then accept full responsibility for their actions and declare that they are at peace with God and will gladly pay the price for their sins. One week later, some advocate is petitioning for a stay of execution and by golly that newly born believer jumps on the band wagon and starts talking about forgiveness.
Now, Bieber has "found God" and all will be forgiven. Yupper.”

“Yup - give Hudak 8 years in office and if he can't find a way to show us he has created a million jobs, he'll resign. Which won't leave us any better off you notice - just 8 years down the road with nothing to show for it.
Gotta admit though - that offer is really going to impress the base.”
