Below is a good video from the folks at LUSH that I recently received on email about the wonders the Enbridge pipeline (think: ‘Keystone XL but only in Canada’) will bring to Canada. Included in the email was this text:
“We’re sure you are aware of the Keystone XL debate in the US, but are you aware of the Enbridge pipeline project in Canada? Enbridge is spending $5 million dollars on an ad campaign to build public support of their $5.5 billion pipeline and taker proposal that will cut through Canada (Alberta and British Columbia). Enbridge glosses over the threat this poses for countless animals, ecosystems and communities in [this video of theirs].”
Here is LUSH’s response to the Enbridge video linked above:
At LUSH, we believe that a multi-billion dollar project proposed by an unsuitable industry – one that could threaten land, water and jobs – is one that Canadians and Americans should have a right to vote on!
Please don’t hesitate to reach out for additional information on LUSH’s campaigns to stop further expansion of Canada’s Tar Sands (our campaign takes a stand against TWO pipelines: Keystone XL in the US and Enbridge Northern Gateway Project in Canada).
