Enbridge Northern Gateway, Nothing to Gain, So Much to Loose

A good article in the Common Sense Canadian this week discussing the Enbridge Northern Gateway project and the risks it poses for BC and its natural resources. The Northern Gateway is a proposed oil pipeline through Northern BC from Alberta to Kitimat. The pipeline would run through both the Fraser and Skeena systems and in earthquake, avalanche and landslide prone Northern BC is simple an accident waiting to happen. Enbridge's spotty safety record and a recent spill in the Kalamazoo River in Michigan are hardly reassuring. BC stands to gain almost nothing from allowing this project to go forward and the pipeline would threaten two of the most economically and biologically important watersheds in the province.
