Take Action

The Northern Gateway project invites the world’s largest supertankers and dirtiest oil to the unspoiled waters of coastal British Columbia. In addition to the possibility of oil spills in a place that hosts some of world’s most ecologically productive waters, Enbridge’s pipelines and tankers provide a key commercial outlet for tar sands oil, exacerbating the staggering impact from this massive industrial development and accelerating Canada’s contribution to atmospheric carbon and climate change.
