Re: Residents organize townhall meeting on pipeline, Burnaby NOW, Sept. 19. Kinder Morgan's engineering director Michael Davies is quoted: "We haven't seen any unusual corrosion or have had any other problems with diluted bitumen. At pipeline temperatures, it's not more acidic or corrosive than conventional crude oil." Who said it was more corrosive? The existing pipeline was built to the highest standards of the 1950s, yet despite being well maintained, still leaked once a year over the past decade. Posing no additional threat is of little comfort to Burnaby residents.
