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.

Why British Columbia should reject the Enbridge pipeline permanently
Ben West, Tar Sands Campaign Director for ForestEthics Advocacy, stressed that the battle is far from over.
Ben West: "Stephen Harper might think he has the final say about these pipelines, but he is wrong. There are many thousands of us in BC who are part of a social movement that will continue to get bigger and stronger until this reckless pipeline project is stopped"
As opposition to tar sands pipelines and tankers rises, this project is sure to sink.
