Enbridge’s record out east questioned

Editor: I think I should share my experiences with those living along the proposed Gateway pipeline.

Editor:

As someone who has been dealing with the environmental impact of an Enbridge project in Kincardine, I think I should share my experiences with those living along the proposed Gateway pipeline route to consider.

Enbridge began operating a 115 wind turbine project in our community in early 2009.  Residents living among the turbines started complaining about health issues almost immediately but they were brushed off by Enbridge whose local management chose to hide behind flawed Ontario government rules. A complaint resolution protocol formally written into government approvals for the project was ignored.

Over the past two years, as we have presented case studies of twenty health affected households, Enbridge has still taken no action to address these problems.

Our local medical officer of health responded that these residents concerns were ‘absolutely legitimate’; but Enbridge continues to stall taking actions to address the peoples’ issues.

The Enbridge record of behavior with our project would indicate that their responsiveness to problems as claimed in their statement of corporate values is fantasy. When seen in the cold light of day outside the Enbridge boardroom, it is merely a poster for a public relations exercise of the most cynical kind.

Our experiences should be a warning for your community to be wary of Enbridge’s promises.
