Not much danger of leaking oil in a modern pipeline, oil is far to valuable to to let it just leak.

Pipeline protests are mostly political and easily resolved if the parties were honest and actually tried to remedy the concern.

Too many want to badmouth oil pipelines but the alternatives are far less safe. Shipping and trucking oil is not better.

Its you dont want pipelines, then start the process of reducing oil consumption by stopping buying medicines, anything with chemicals, and all plastics.

Yet another matter where the public operates under a grossly false premise.
