I cannot see why the upstream extraction and processing of petroleum products should be considered as a factor in the pipeline approval process. Pipeline companies such as TransCanada have no control over how oil producing/processing companies operate their facilities to control emissions. Pipeline companies are only responsible for the safe, clean transportation of products provided by others. Reviewing the control of emissions, by extracting/processing companies, to ensure compliance with legislation is the responsibility of Provincial and/or Federal applicable ministries, not pipeline companies.

Consideration of upstream emissions is a sneaky way to throttle oil sands and conventional oil and gas development. If environmentalists want that, they should say so to democratically elected MPs, not by stealth. If the majority of Canadians want to stop oil and gas development, then we will just be handing over a failed economy to Americans or Chinese at a massive discount. However before that happens, I predict a Constitutional crisis where Alberta and Saskatchewan look seriously at leaving Confederation. How will environmentalists like wearing that?
