Two reasonably positive things about Enbridge
Lest we be accused of being unfair, we have two positive items about Enbridge to mention this morning:
First, the Clarkston News reports that Enbridge has awarded the Oxford Fire Dept. a $1000 grant to purchase combustible gas detection meters. We’re glad to see emergency responders from local municipalities getting financial support. Surely they need it. And indeed, Enbridge’s “Safe Community Program” is a real example– as opposed to the hollow rhetorical ones we hear from their PR folks– of neighborliness. Indeed, we will just note that months ago we encouraged the trustees of Brandon and Groveland Townships to seek funding from Enbridge for community projects.
Secondly, our ROW agent has been doing a very good job of providing construction updates. (From what we’ve heard, other ROW agents are not doing the same). In the latest, we’re told that Enbridge’s plan is still to finish construction by the end of 2012. Surveyors continue to move east and clearing crews are right on their heels. If you’ve seen the footage here on the blog, you know that tree clearing took place on our property on Monday and Tuesday. We haven’t seen any other crews since, however.
