Northern Gateway Pipeline

Postby deja vu on Sat Apr 12, 2014 12:22 pm

One of the most divisive issues in Kitimat in a generation comes to a head today when up to 5,000 eligible voters cast their votes for or against Enbridge's Northern Gateway pipeline project.

More than 900 residents have already voted in advance polls on a question that has split the community. "Neighbours won’t talk to neighbours," one local resident told CBC News, "and this is not going to go away for a long time." Kitimat is the community most affected by the $6.5-billion project, because as the endpoint for the pipeline bringing bitumen from Alberta, it would house a marine terminal where the supertankers would load up. ... -1.2607877

It's not make it or break it time, but this vote if counted honestly will give all involved an insight into how people feel about this issue. Personally I want no part of it, because I think it's a disaster waiting to happen. Enbridge doesn't have the best record, and I think some are trying to force it to become reality.

The Federal Court of Appeal has overturned approval of the Enbridge's controversial Northern Gateway project after finding Ottawa failed to properly consult the First Nations affected by the pipeline.

"We find that Canada offered only a brief, hurried and inadequate opportunity ... to exchange and discuss information and to dialogue," the ruling says. "It would have taken Canada little time and little organizational effort to engage in meaningful dialogue on these and other subjects of prime importance to Aboriginal peoples. But this did not happen." ... -1.3659561

One more former PM Harper mess undone. This is good news for the country, because Harper did this by shoving it down our throat and negotiating behind closed doors to make his rich buddies happy. Common sense reigns and can hope this will be the end of one more pipeline no one wanted in the first place.
