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.
