Raincoast is an official intervener in the National Energy Board hearings on the Enbridge Northern Gateway Project and have submitted several volumes of evidence about the potential ecological impacts, risks and hazards of this project.
The show is presented by Raincoast’s Director of Marine Operations Brian Falconer, a licensed maritime captain whose 35+ years navigating the B.C. and Alaskan coasts make him uniquely qualified to address and discuss the threats. Enbridge has consistently minimized the oil spill risks by their selective omissions, under representations, and misleading claim that the chance of a major spill occurring on the coast from these giant oil tankers would be “once in 15,000 years”

Strong partnerships are integral to our success.
Our efforts need to be maintained and advanced, now more than ever. As the biodiversity and climate crises collide, your support allows us to continue to make tangible conservation gains.
