not the largest earthquake ever, 9.0 in 1700 around Vancouver Island apparently.....I doubt this will do anything in regards to changing Enbridge's mind......
7.7!

Initially it was reported as 7.7 Walter! The largest earthquake in Canada supposidly ...ever! I wonder what Enbridge has to say as they report there hasn't been any kind of this activity for hundreds of years! Well I for one hope this puts the final nail in the coffin of this rediculous proposal!
Thankyou
