The proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline and tanker project is a story with two ends.


Enbridge's Athabasca pipeline in Alberta, Canada

Enbridge is proposing to build two pipelines 1,170 kilometres (730 miles) from Alberta's tar sands to the coast at Kitimat, BC. From there, over 225 oil tankers would ply the rugged waters of British Columbia’s north coast for the first time ever. Tar sands would be shipped, with no up-grading or refining, to Asian markets.
