Submit Comments on the Enbridge Pipeline
The Canadian Government is accepting comments on the Enbridge Pipeline proposal which would carry oil and bitumen from the Alberta Tar Sands to Kitimat on the Douglas Channel on BC's northern coast. The pipeline would cross the Fraser, Skeena and several important tributaries before being loaded into oil tankers at Kitimat.
The proposal has drawn heated criticism because the risk it poses to the Fraser and Skeena, two of BC's most productive salmon rivers and to the Central Coast ecosystem, one of the largest tracts of roadless coastal wilderness in the world. Eighty percent of BC residents oppose the pipeline and despite millions of dollars offered by Enbridge, first nations bands have rejected allowing the pipeline through their territory.
Whether or not you are a Canadian it is criticall important you make your voice heard. Tell the Canadian Government why the Fraser, Skeena and Central Coast are important to you and how the pipeline would adversely affect British Columbia.
