Calgary-based Enbridge is slated to be the first to officially present its final argument for its project at the hearings, but opponents made their case at a public rally Sunday in Terrace, BC, a scenic northern city whose council passed a resolution last year opposing the project

Eric Laitinen drove from Kitimat, the would-be home of the Northern Gateway tanker terminal, to join the crowd of about 200 gathered in a downtown park

“I’ve been working in the oil industry for a long time, and I know that if a pipeline breaks, this area’s fisheries and everything is gone,” said the retired 71-year-old

“A gas pipeline is fine, because leaks there don’t destroy the rivers or lakes or anything.”

Bunk. No such thing as a "final pitch" for the bad faith Greens if they don't get their way.

Oh come on, what's the big deal if a little oil leaks back into the earth, just look how Alaska has done since the Valdez oil spill (still cleaning up) and what about BP and the gulf coast (will be cleaning up for the next ?? years). Come on give the oil companies a break, they are just trying to make a buck.

Enbridges track record speaks for itself. NO PIPELINES from them. 3 years later, Kalamazoo River STILL not right.

From CBC news in 2010 "Enbridge pipeline controllers in Edmonton ignored repeated leak warnings for 17 hours before shutting down a pipeline that poured 20,000 barrels of oil into the Kalamazoo River...".

The key words in the above headline is "IGNORED" and "REPEATED".

Not necessarily against this project, but Enbridge has a lot of work to do to establish it's competence in maintaining such a pipeline.

I thought pitching time was over, awaiting the umpteenth study results & then a decision. Hopefully, this will result is some benefit...like a pipeline of WTI based crude to eastern part of Canada ie. mid Ont. to Maritimes.

Canada doesn't want one there but they want the US to build one here.

You be the judge of that one.

Doesn't Canada still have an east to west railway? I thought they did last time I looked at a map.
