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.

HIS DIVINE POWER HAS GIVEN TO US ALL THINGS THAT PERTAIN
TO LIFE AND GODLINESS, THROUGH THE KNOWLEDGE OF HIM
WHO CALLED US BY GLORY AND VIRTUE.
( 2 PETER 1:3 *NKJV )
There are times in this life when one of these 9 statements apply
to each of us. So let them now be reminders that Minister to us.....
"Moments in Life"
1. There are moments in life when you miss someone so much that you just
want to pick them from your dreams and hug them for real!
So cherish them while they are with you.
2. When the door of happiness closes, another opens;
but often times we look so long at the closed door that we don't see the
one, which has been opened for us.
3. Don't go for looks; they can deceive. Don't go for wealth; even that
fades away. Go for someone who makes you smile, because it takes only a
smile to make a dark day seem bright. Find the one that makes your heart
4. Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want
to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things
you want to do.
5. May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make
you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human and
enough hope to make you happy.
6. The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything;
they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.
7. The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past; you can't
go forward in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.
8. When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling.
So live your life so at the end, you're the one who is smiling and everyone
around you is crying.
9. Don't count the years-count the memories...........Life is not measured
by the number of breaths we take; but by the moments that take our breath
With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
