BC rejects Enbridge Northern Gateway proposal in final written submission

The BC government's final written submission stated that it cannot support the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline proposal as presented beause Northern Gateway has been "unable to address British Columbians' environmental concerns."

This decision comes after a large-scale petition urging Premier Christy Clark not to support the pipeline.

Despite reports that Enbridge would meet the BC Liberal government, Premier Clark's office confirmed that no meeting has occurred yet, and that none was scheduled.

"Northern Gateway has said that they would provide effective spill response in all cases. However, they have presented little evidence as to how they will respond," Lake said in a news release.

"For that reason, our government cannot support the issuance of a certificate for the pipeline as it was presented to the Joint Review Panel."

BC will present oral final arguments to the Joint Review Panel when hearings recommence in Terrace on June 17, based on the final written submission.

Please...read the text of BC's rejection. They are NOT saying NO..they are saying...'ok,we will say no today, you, Enbridge, say the right words to make it all look like you can and will clean up your spills and then we can say yayy..look what we got for BC', and sign off on it.

It is a set up. Take a look at the CBC video news video withan interview with the President of Gateway..

"Now you tell us what you need to shut up the people of BC, and we will say anything you want".

The big word is 'engagement'. Means what can we say to show you how wonderful we are?
