Re: “How do you feel about Plains All American's plans to replace 123 miles of oil pipeline through SLO, Santa Barbara, and Ventura counties?

Plains All American GUILTY!!!!California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said, "Engaging in this kind of reckless conduct is not just irresponsible its criminal. Todays verdict should send a message: If you endanger our environment and wildlife, we will hold you accountable. At the California Department of Justice, we will continue prosecuting corporate negligence and willful ignorance to the fullest extent of the law." Plains All American faced a 15-count indictment that included three felonies. The charges said the company violated the Clean Waters Act.
The jury found plains guilty of the following charges:

Failing to properly maintain its "dangerous, highly-pressurized" pipeline
Failing to notify emergency response agencies in a timely matter
Killing marine mammals
Killing protected sea birds
Killing other sea life
Discharging oil onto land or water, violating county ordinances
