Canada’s Northern Gateway Pipeline gets the green light
Canada has agreed the pipeline with over 200 conditions which must be agreed before Enbridge can progress.
Due to create over 3000 jobs the pipeline in British Columbia from Kitimat to Alberta has met with fierce opposition from residents, including aboriginal communities.
The project actually includes two pipelines, 731 miles long, one bringing a type of crude called diluted bitumen to the coast, the other taking a condensate used to dilute crude oil away.
Canada’s government support the project but many groups and scientists were against citing many concerns including the effect of a tanker spill on the BC coast.
