National Wildlife Federation Prepared to Sue Montana Over Mega-loads. By George Prentice. Boise Weekly.

Exxon is now getting ready to test taking the megaloads up Highway 12 and through Montana. There could be as many as 200 gigantic loads from Exxon sent to Alberta. Some, however, are being broken down into smaller loads so they don’t have to travel on beautiful Highway 12.

    Terse report on this today on NPR..
    I get what they are trying to do with these loads, but I don’t quite understand why they need a pipeline all the way to the gulf if the purpose is to sell gasoline to the states. Why not just build a refinery in Alberta and ship gas instead of the heavy, dense crude?

    Again on NPR today….the goal is to refine the nasty thick oil at the gulf refineries and ship it overseas. So why do we need to build a pipeline across the entire country just to provide a port for Canada to ship their environmentally dirty oil/gas?

    need to fix your headline – should be National Wildlife Federation – not MT
