Evidently, Enbridge still isn’t finished thumbing its nose at Brandon Township. According to the latest from ace reporter Susan Bromley at the Clarkston News, Enbridge has been disregarding a township ordinance limiting hours of construction operation. Enbridge, true to form, says that the ordinance doesn’t apply to them– a tune they’ve been playing for a very long time.
Of course, in the scheme of things– that is, compared, say, to a spill– starting up noisy construction vehicles might not seem to be a big deal. But this little incident illustrates a number of points we’ve made around here ad infinitum:
- When Enbridge says it wants to be a good neighbor, it doesn’t mean it.
- When Enbridge says it is “sensitive” to local ordinances and regulations, it is simply not telling the truth.
- Enbridge does not learn from its mistakes.
- The reason Enbridge can’t do better— at this point, the conclusion is inescapable– has to be because it just doesn’t want to.
Like it would kill them to just wait until 7 am to start up their trucks. Sigh.
