May 2, 2011

Would you TRUST a foreign companywhose technical classification for your lives, community, and water supply is “Low Consequence”, thus enabling the company to save money in materials?

Would you TRUST a foreign company

who is under scrutiny for market manipulation with the intent to add $4 billion to the U.S. fuel bill? That is a violation of anti-trust law. As well as using deceptive practices to obtain easements at low ball prices and when a landowner refuses, the foreign company sues them, even without having the necessary permits to build the Keystone XL pipeline.Would you TRUST a foreign company

who provides misleading and deceptive information about the contents, claims that they are not responsible for what flows through their pipes, and tells landowners that they will not receive any warning material about contents?Would you TRUST a foreign company

who admits that their detection system will not detect all leaks? TransCanada’s numbers indicate as much as 9,000 barrels and the State Department acknowledges as much as 1.7 million gallons of diluted bitumen and it’s carcinogens, per day, could leak without triggering the leak detection system.Would you TRUST a foreign company

who exaggerates jobs claims by as much as 13 times more than State Department numbers and claims that this is an American Oil Pipeline? TransCanada’s fine print states “Readers are cautioned to not place undue reliance on this forward looking information” and the State Department said there is no documentation that any of this heavy tar sands crude will stay in the U.S.

If you would like to learn more and have your voice heard, a one time public comment period meeting will be held in Winnsboro at the Depot at 6:30 pm on Friday, May 6.

Landowners who are dealing with TransCanada or have signed with TransCanada still have a right to voice any concerns. The issue of paying landowners prior to gaining approval for this project is a risk for TransCanada. TransCanada spokesman Shawn Howard, based in the company’s headquarters in Calgary, Alberta, said “We’re not buying land or taking it from people” but paying for easement rights, Howard says. He says landowners can keep the money even if the project isn’t approved.(USA Today)”
