Local Residents Oppose BC’s Northern Gateway Pipeline
If built, Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway Pipeline would send oil right across the central portion of British Columbia – just inland of the Pacific coast and all the way into Alberta.
It would extend 1,170 kilometres between Kitimat, BC, just south of Terrace and Brudenheim, Alberta, a town located just north of Edmonton.
There’s a new website campaign, called Pipe Up Against Enbridge, which is galvanizing opposition against the pipeline.
Check out the site for interactive maps and videos that offer anyone a chance to make their voice heard. First Nations groups across the region are also protesting the pipeline.
