Writer: I’ll believe pipeline when I see it

Prediction that pipeline will be delayed many times in future

Dear editor,

Okay, so they tell us that the now-famous pipeline will be built! Hmmm!

Many of us are scratching our heads and asking the question, “Really now?”

Our premier and prime minister made this big and loud and maybe a bit too enthusiastically “Yes, the pipeline will be built!” Wow! The excitement was amazing!

Our p.m. and premier were breathing a sigh of relief, the pipe is going to be built, she even announced this in front of a ton of people (her adoring fans). She calls out, “Pick up those tools, we have a pipeline to build!”

Maybe she could have said instead, “Bring out those Swiffer dusters cuz we have many old pipelines to be dusted.”

The truth be told, not one inch has been built and most smart Albertans know it won’t be anytime soon cuz this is just a lotta smoke and fibs.

I’m sure that there will be many, many delays in the pipeline’s future.

Thanks for letting me vent.

Larry Hiebert
