Submissions and public documents on the Enbridge Northern Gateway Project

Putting the Great Bear Rainforest at risk, the Enbridge Northern Gateway Project posed serious implications for the wildlife of coastal British Columbia through habitat destruction associated with increased tanker traffic and the very real threat of diluted bitumen spills. Raincoast was an intervenor in the CEAA/ NEB (joint panel) review process and, along with First Nations, filed legal challenges to the project’s approval by the NEB and the federal government. Those legal challenges were successful and upheld by the Canadian Federal government.
