David Black has conjured up a fantasy project involving a refinery in Kitimat which would bless our province with many thousands of construction and then permanent jobs. How great!
All it would require is a few billion dollars from phantom investors willing to put their money into a new refinery added to a contracting field of North American operations that have been losing money and shutting down for decades. and, of course, we would have to accept the "Gateway" pipeline first. There's the hook in that worm.
Make no mistake; this proposal is no more than another ploy to convince British Columbians that we should accept the risks of this proposed steel snake to carry poison across our virgin territory in the faint hope that if we build it they (the jobs and a refinery) will come.
No matter what, this refinery would never be built and, if we collectively have any sense, we will not allow that steel snake into our home.
