If PostMedia Vancouver Sun Messengers can't get the Justin Trudeau quotes right on KM Tankers ...

The truth is, in the mind of one journalist, or the typesetter (does he still set types) there is going to be 34 vessels per day leaving Burrard Inlet... which means of course there will be a whole lot of tankers stacked up waiting to load dilbits.

The 'Typesetter', even got the journalist last name spelled WRONG.

Hard Copy:
from five to 34 vessels a day






Online Copy corrected


 Tankers moving in and out of Burrard Inlet is based on the Tides, and CNR train movements across the harbour via Thornton Tunnel.

Before any Aframax Tankers make their way into the docks at Kinder Morgan's 'Maximize-Me dining area', east of the Second Narrows, there needs to be discussions on the timing of Rail car crossings athwartship, and their ups and downs needs of the Lift Span so as to not impede marine traffic and the Tides.

For Instance:

CN Rail payloads  -  152 cars per train

2003 -  62 crossings of Burrard Inlet via Thornton Tunnel per week
         -  9 crossings per day

2011 - 84 crossings of Burrard Inlet via Thornton Tunnel per week
         - 12 crossings per day

2015 - How many per week N/A
         - How many per day  obviously N/A

2021 - 95 crossings of Burrard Inlet via Thornton Tunnel per week
         - 14 crossings per day


Kinder Morgan Aframax promise: 2018 - 1 per day dependent upon Low Tide
