Enbridge’s Northern Gateway Project

To understand Raincoast’s concerns over the Northern Gateway Project and to assist others, we have compiled short segments of analysis and reviews that Raincoast has produced either as evidence for the NEB Hearings or in popular reports.  These materials are short, condensed and referenced, unless otherwise stated that they are longer.

If you want details (vs summaries) on all of these topics, including the deficiencies in Enbridge’s ESA that the JRP is reviewing, click here.
