Twenty-one years ago, the Exxon Valdez ran aground, spilling 40 million litres of crude oil into Prince William Sound and causing irreversible damage. Now, Enbridge wants to bring the same risk to B.C.’s pristine coastal waters and rainforest.
The proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline would carry oil from the tar sands to a port at Kitimat, B.C. Supertankers fed by the Enbridge pipeline would travel the same waters where the Queen of the North ferry sank in 2006.
Nature Canada is one of over a hundred signatories – including First Nations, businesses and prominent Canadians – to an open letter opposing the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline and crude oil tanker traffic in BC’s northern coastal waters. The risk oil spills pose to First Nations, communities and the environment is too great.
