Enbridge has been promoting its Northern Gateway Pipeline project (NGP) since 2002. Designed to move tar sands bitumen to the west coast, the company has never been clear about where the oil will go after that. Apart from glib assurances that it won’t wash up on
"Enbridge has just launched a multi-million dollar campaign to convince British Columbians to support a Chinese funded pipeline that would deliver raw Alberta bitumen to the port of Kitimat where it would be loaded on supertankers bound for refineries largely owned by the Communist Party of China for sale in heavily price subsidized gasoline markets."
Prime Minister Stephen Harper's government is determined to speed up and streamline the government-approval process for pipelines, recently cutting federal environmental-oversight agencies drastically from 40 to three, slashing budgets, limiting public participation and assigning fixed assessment timelines. It's all part of a slick plan.
