The proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipelines Project Project hearings continue in Vancouver yesterday. BC Metis Federation is sharing an article from the Business Insider that allows Metis people to better assess physical the impacts in Alberta. Ironically the pollution in Beijing, China was so bad over the past few days that local residents were advised not to be outside. Enbridge has been proposed to open economic markets for bitumen to eastern markets such as China but given their existing environmental challenges does exporting more carbon dioxide products from Canada assist the impacts to the global environment?
As people weigh out the situation please consider the bigger picture of what is at stake for our future as mankind. BC Metis Federation remains in strong opposition to the proposed Enbridge project and encourages governments to reconsider alternative energy sources for the betterment of our planet.
The pictures and impacts certainly paint a story. Whether you feel it is good or bad is up to you.
