Don’t Turn Spirit Bears into Ghost Bears

The Enbridge Corporation is seeking approval to build the Northern Gateway pipeline through British Columbia’s Great Bear Rainforest, endangering its spectacular Spirit Bear Coast. If such a pipeline is built, the remaining 400 spirit bears, one of North America’s greatest wildlife treasures, will be endangered even further.

No one can guarantee there will be no oil spill, not even the CEO of Enbridge, according to his interview with the Battle Creek Enquirer : “Well, to assure that [an oil spill]it will never happen again, no. And I doubt that anyone with responsibility for any process can ever guarantee that there will never be another problem.”

After the Enbridge spill in Michigan’s Kalamazoo River, it appears inevitable that a spill will occur on the Gateway project, causing irreparable damage this sensitive ecosystem.

Take Action: Contact the president and CEO of Enbridge urging his corporation to drop plans for the Northern Gateway pipeline. In addition, write the Premier of British Columbia, urging her government to protect the Great Bear Rainforest by rejecting Enbridge’s plan.
