Indian Country 52 #51 – No to Enbridge
“The B.C. government has officially expressed its opposition to a proposal for the Northern Gateway pipeline project, saying it fails to address the province’s environmental concerns.
The province made the announcement in its final written submission to the Northern Gateway Pipeline Joint Review Panel.
“British Columbia thoroughly reviewed all of the evidence and submissions made to the panel and asked substantive questions about the project, including its route, spill response capacity and financial structure to handle any incidents,” said Environment Minister Terry Lake.”
– Warrior Publications, B.C. government officially opposes Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline.
“A three-member environmental review panel in Canada has recommended approval of Enbridge Inc.’s Northern Gateway oil pipeline through pristine First Nations territory, even though the project is opposed by Indigenous Peoples, the provincial government and environmental groups.
The regulators said the $7.5 billion, 730-mile pipeline would have little adverse environmental impact as long as Enbridge complied with 209 conditions while piping viscous bitumen crude from the Alberta oil sands through one of the world’s most ecologically sensitive areas to Kitimat, a deep-water port on the west coast. The pipeline would make international export of Canadian oil sands crude possible for the first time, with this oil destined for Asia.
The Yinka Dene Alliance, which represents more than 100 First Nations opposing the project, called the study flawed and said they would not budge.”
