The Canadian government is considering a proposal from Enbridge for a 1,170 km pipeline from Alberta’s tar sands to the coast of British Columbia. The pipeline would bring more than 200 crude oil tankers annually to this spectacular coast. With this kind of traffic, it will not be a question of IF a spill will occur, but a question of when, where, and how large. Each year since 2003, Enbridge is responsible for at least 63 spills, leaks, and releases. Greenpeace is calling on the Canadian government to legally ban oil tankers on Canada’s west coast, and on Enbridge CEO Pat Daniel to cancel the proposed Northern Gateway Pipelines Project so that Enbridge doesn’t become the BP of B.C.
