Factsheet: No Pipelines! No Tankers!

The Harper and Alberta governments, along with Big Oil and gas companies, have made it abundantly clear they view the tar sands (also known as oil sands or natural bitumen) as a key economic driver in Canada. The Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipelines, the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project and the Pacific Trails Pipeline are critical components to this vision. These pipelines will transport fossil fuels through communities, across rivers and streams to the pristine Pacific Coast where they will be loaded in massive supertankers that will navigate BC’s coastline to reach export markets, putting our land, water and communities at risk along the way.
