Will Saint John get a second Irving oil refinery?
Bashing the Irvings is a pastime for some people. Is it's justified but just as often it is not. It really doesn’t matter what the issue is. For some people, mention the word Irving and the fur begins to fly.
That’s a pretty common thing for big companies. McDonald’s and WalMart are other examples where there are those that love to hate them, just because of their name. Some folks have well thought out reasons for opposing these businesses but most are just sheep.
Now there’s news that the Irvings in New Brunswick are looking to set up a second oil refinery in Saint John. (The city is already home to Canada’s largest oil refinery). This would create a lot of construction jobs, perhaps 5000 and 1000 more long-term permanent jobs plus spinoffs. It also provides more oil refining capacity righet here in Canada.
The first step for the Irvings to make this happen is an Environmental Impact Assessment. Before this has even begun, the hard-core Chicken Littles have already made up their mind before seeing the case brought forward. It’s opposed because it’s a refinery and it's opposed because it’s the Irvings. Not true,,,its opposed because of the pollution number one reason.
he's calling David Suz a chicken little meaning David Suz concerns are blown out of porportion, much ado about nothing. therefore this must be the way he feels about the public too then ?? f him !
another blog on the same page talks about how Jack Keir former irving bu_ boy from the shipyard is the head of energy and that (here's the big part) that good ole jim boy blogs on his site and he's bragging about it ! If I had a blog site and Jim Keir wrote in and
supported big biz and talks atlantica I would let the other bloggers chew him up and spit him out ! does Spinks know that Atlantica is coming and that Jack Keir will become a big player in all this ? I really don't think this Spinks dude cares enough, he cares about himself like too many other around here. no wonder he got a favourable mention in the rag on the front page. now I see why. and now he's more warmed up to irving since, it is obvious. I will not be back to that blog.
if I could I would tell him off like I want to but I don't know how to do it without forwarding my email to him and I'm very particlular who I give my add to. irving supporters are not allowed in my add book !! I don't like him already. no wonder he has a high traffic rate on his visitor amount, that is if its a true count...he has just gotten lots of advertizment probably to help ward off readers from your site. he's an irving boy, no doubt on my mind. to get to the meat of the issues it takes guts and he hasn't got the guts.
At this point of our history, our economy runs on oil. Unless you’re completely off the power grid growing your own food in a Unabomber like cabin in the woods, you also depend on oil. If you don’t, you’re probably not reading this right now.
I’m looking forward to a really good discussion on the pros and cons of a second oil refinery in Saint John. At this point, I haven’t made up my mind whether it’s a good idea or a bad one, but I won’t make up my mind simply because the word Irving is attached to it.
