Save the trees! Save the animals!

A new project called the Enbridge project would make a pipeline to transport oil from Edmonton to the north west of BC. This idea has been attacked by first nation groups saying it will damage the wild life and the people living their. I think knowing that there is a major protected area in kitimat their should not be a continuing of this project. A U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says there are about 70 oil spills per day. these are very small oil spills but this can of course wreck the housing prices of all the people living their and also this shows the people of Kitimat that oil is worth more than there protected areas


Coastal First Nations executive director Art Sterritt says after five years of scientific research and community consultations, the groups have found "no good" can come from the project.
The Enbridge pipeline would stretch more than 1,000-kilometres from the tar sands near Edmonton to the northwestern B.C. coastal town of Kitimat, before crude would be loaded onto tankers for export across the ocean.

  1. The NDP have announced in a March 24th press release that they intend to introduce a bill outlawing all oil tankers in the Dixon Entrance, Hecate Strait, and Queen Charlotte Sound.
    "The moratorium on oil tanker traffic has been in place for over 35 years - it was necessary to protect our coastline then - it's still necessary now"
