I’m not sure, but did it spill inside the Kinder Morgan facility, which is entirely which is an entire spill containment system, as required by the NEB?

It’s certainly a big deal. Any spill is a bad spill. It’s good to know that the spill response worked accordingly, and only 30 barrels was spill and contained.

Now all of a sudden "any spill is a big deal" but before it was "old junker cars leak more than 100 litres every year, a 100 litre spill is nothing"

Yes, because 4800L is bigger than 100L. 48 times actually. For rational people, when the facts change we change our opinions.

When the facts change is an oxymoron. 100L was never a fact. You'll probably still find a way to cheerlead for KM after it lied about the amount of oil it spilled though. Carry on

Amid nickel boom, Vale moves forward with underground mine at Voisey's Bay

First ore expected no later than April 2021

CBC News ·

Brazilian mining giant Vale is capitalizing on a nickel boom and moving forward with its underground mine at Voisey's Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Dwight Ball announced Monday morning.

It's a "momentous announcement" for the mining industry, Ball said at the announcement at the Sheraton Hotel in downtown St. John's.

"Vale is proceeding with its underground mine," Ball said.

"This is a province that's open for business, and people are showing up."

The move will extend the mine's operating life by at least 15 years, Ball said. Over the five-year construction, more than 16,000 person-years of employment will be created.

Once operational, direct employment will hit 1,700 jobs, including the Long Harbour processing plant, Ball said.

It's an issue that the Quebec media are increasingly paying attention to.

Edmonton Economy is picking up.

The new 3.5mil IP Petro Chemical plant is starting to get into high gear.

Starting to see more activity at the Fabrication yards.

Did you know that Vancouver has the highest volume Ferrari dealership in North America? Not LA with it wealthy celebrities, or Silicon Valley with its tech millionaires but li'l old Vancouver with it's wealth of Chinese money launderers.

I remember when HK Chinese kids used to roll into my old Vancouver high school in their gold Mercedes it was considered a big deal. The mainland Chinese seem to be taking things to another level.

That's not even remotely true, as the article even admits, but makes for a good headline.

That very well may be true. Vancouver has, at least, the highest sales/capita of supercars in North America - apparently backed up by ICBC stats - and was dubbed the Supercar Capital of North America back in 2016.

Quote:
“We don’t have a big population, but there’s disproportionately more supercars here than New York, L.A., Toronto,” Stowe told Vancity Buzz.
http://dailyhive.com/vancouver/vanco...north-america/

Rolls Royce also eyes the Vancouver market as very important:

Quote:
When Rolls-Royce Motor Cars unveiled its first SUV in the Americas last month, it chose Vancouver. On day one, it sold six, which start at $399,000 each — not bad for a bespoke brand that delivered just 3,362 cars worldwide last year....

...One of Rolls-Royce’s top-performing dealerships globally is in Vancouver...

...The University of British Columbia has earned the moniker the University of Beautiful Cars for the student-owned fleet of Lamborghinis, Aston Martins and Porsches parked in campus lots (sometimes sporting novice driver plates).
^source: http://vancouversun.com/news/local-n...or-rolls-royce

This is anecdotal - but everything I visit DT Vancouver I see some - also everytime I've been to Park Royal Shopping centre it isn't uncommon to follow a Lamborghini in and a Ferrari out.

It's Real Estate and rich Asians moving in as the articles state.

***BREAKING BREAKING***

**ATENTION** This is NOT fake news, Burnabynow ACTUALLY did a story on this! Oh the hysteria!!

Trans Mountain reported 12 spills in Burnaby, Burrard Inlet, since beginning of March

http://www.burnabynow.com/news/trans...rch-1.23338229

Those included:

- 10 millilitres (0.04 Cups) of lubricating oil, and around 10 mL (0.04 Cups) of grease.
- around 200 mL (0.8 Cups) of lubricating oil was spilled on the deck of a barge from an air compressor and, because it was raining, around 10 mL (0.04 Cups) fell from the barge into the ocean.

- 500 milliters (2.1 Cups) of antifreeze spilled onto the pavement from a vehicle belonging to a security guard

- several incidents of up four litres (16 Cups) of biodegradable vegetable-based hydraulic fluid and 100 mL (0.4 Cups) of automatic transmission fluid spilled into the ocean.

"Three spills into the Burrard Inlet were reported to the Ministry of Environment, including a release of an unspecified amount of contaminated water, 10 millilitres of lubricating oil, and around 10 mL of grease.

According to Trans Mountain's monthly construction reports, nine other incidents were categorized by Trans Mountain as "spills," but only those spills that satisfied reporting criteria were reported to the government.

Trans Mountain is required to file these monthly reports with the National Energy Board since construction began at the terminals, which includes information on safety, environment, security issues, and “non-compliances” that happen during the time period. Reports must also include details about how they resolved the issues and their location.

According to one of these reports, contaminated water held on the tug DB Bremberton was released on March 2 before the company received confirmation the water was safe. Water samples were previously sent to be analyzed at a laboratory in February, and results, also received on March 2, showed it exceeded B.C. environment ministry criteria for discharge. This spill violated a section of the environmental protection plan for the Westridge Marine terminal.

In April, around 200 mL of lubricating oil was spilled on the deck of a barge from an air compressor and, because it was raining, around 10 mL fell from the barge into the ocean. In a second incident, Trans Mountain reported finding sheen on the ocean surface after oily water was splashed from a containment area onto a wood deck.

Ali Hounsell, spokesperson for Trans Mountain, responded to a question about the 12 spills in March, April and May.

“Trans Mountain is committed to the safety of our workers and the environment. We take every incident seriously and undertake transparent and regular reporting of worksite incidents during construction including safety, environmental, security and spills from equipment," she said in an email sent to the NOW on Saturday. "The reporting also includes measures undertaken to mitigate these incidents, and, where applicable, prevent future incidents from occurring."

Other incidents not reported to the environment ministry included half a litre of antifreeze spilled onto the pavement from a vehicle belonging to a security guard; and several incidents of up four litres of biodegradable vegetable-based hydraulic fluid and 100 mL of automatic transmission fluid spilled into the ocean."

Wow 12 separate spills you would think TransMountain would be more in it considering how under a microscope they are.

If a security guard spilled salad dressing it would be reported in that report. I wonder what the spills are like at the protest camps? Filling Naptha stoves, gas generators plus residual oils in ash from fires.
