The actual head line for the Calgary Herald article reads: “TransCanada pipeline explodes in ‘fairly remote area’ of Ontario.”
Yet, this explosion in a “remote area” is not an isolated incident. As stated in the article, “The incident would be the third time in less than two years a TransCanada pipeline in the region has had a leak and has exploded.”
I do believe TransCanada has bandied about some ridiculous statistics to back their claims about how unlikely a break in the Keystone XL would be once constructed. Why should people believe their baseless numbers when we see the horrendous destruction that results from pipeline breaks in places like Ontario, Michigan, the Gulf and all over?
