In Your Opinion: Pipelines have dangerous past

It would have been appropriate to point out, in the article on the history of the propane pipeline in today’s Star, the two disastrous failures of the line:

1. The North Blenheim rupture that killed people; and

2. The Quaker Hill valve failure that destroyed property.

I sure hope the new high-pressure methane line that will run across our farm is installed and monitored much more securely than the existing propane line with its history of catastrophic failures.
