Reference to economic benefits of oil spills taken out of context: Kinder Morgan

Members of the Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations paddle canoes on the waters of Burrard Inlet near the Kinder Morgan Burnaby Terminal for a ceremony to show opposition to the proposed expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline, in North Vancouver, B.C., on Sept. 1, 2012.

Kinder Morgan is on the defensive over a proposal to expand its Trans Mountain pipeline through British Columbia, after the company was ridiculed for saying an oil spill can have positive economic effects.

In its 15,000-page application to the National Energy Board, the company said spill response and clean-up creates business and employment opportunities for affected regions.
