Another Bad Idea: Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline

Hundreds of locals protested the planned petroleum pipeline that will run from Edmonton to Kitimat. The proposed pipeline requires a marine terminal at Kitimat, one of central B.C.’s most pristine areas. First Nations groups that include the Haida, Metlakatla, Heiltsuk, Gitga’at, Kitasoo and Wuikinuxv Nations all oppose the project.

“Due to the uncertainty associated with the transport of crude oil along our unpredictable northwest coast, the Village of Queen Charlotte has resolved that this project should not proceed…All Haida Gwaii municipalities stand together in opposition to Enbridge because the tradeoffs and risks involved are unacceptable,” said Kris Olsen, a municipal councillor with the Village of Queen Charlotte.
