A new report card by Corporate Knights magazine suggests that B.C. and Ontario are Canada’s greenest provinces. This photo depicts the Douglas Channel, just south of Kitimat, B.C., part of the oil Dilbit shipping route for the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway Project. (Darryl Dyck/AP/CP)

‘B.C. and Ontario both score an A- in the survey, with Prince Edward Island finishing close behind with a B+. Alberta and Saskatchewan sit at the bottom, each with a rating of C.’

What is interesting from my perspective is that B.C. which has the strongest anti Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline resistance in Canada gets an A- for its environmental management. Alberta which has the strongest support for the Pipeline and the Athabaskan Tar Sands within its borders is tied for last place for environmental management.

Is it just possible that B.C. is tied for first place because there is such a strong movement to keep Dilbit out of the province? Is it also just possible that Alberta is tied for last place because of the Athabaskan Tar Sands pollution and their pushing of the Dilbit carrying Pipeline?

Now that I have posed the question it is of course my intent to convince you that I am right and that the pipeline should not be built and that the Tar Sands should be shut down. As I have already shown you a picture of  Douglas Channel I can probably make my case by simply showing you the Athabaskan Tar Sands;

This link will take you to the site where I got the above picture. I could continue to rant against both the Pipeline and the Tar Sands but I am guessing the picture and the link make that unnecessary.
