British Columbia Premier Christy Clark is warning that the environmental risks associated with a plan to sell Canadian oil to Asia through the Northern Gateway pipeline outweigh the economic benefits, leaving her at odds with the federal and Alberta governments.

If you thought NDP Opposition Leader Thomas Mulcair was mistaken -- or, worse, just being "divisive" -- when he said about a week ago that the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline was finished, think again.

OTTAWA - Taxpayers aren’t adequately protected in the event Enbridge Inc.’s proposed Northern Gateway oilsands pipeline suffers the same kind of catastrophic failure that resulted in a $765 million US spill in Michigan two years ago, says a former Canadian insurance executive.

Pasted hereon is one of the funniest clips I have ever seen. It’s a spoof of an Enbridge pipeline video ad by Vancouver Province cartoonist, Dan Murphy. It’s brilliant and was on the Province’s website last Friday. It was pulled a few hours later after an enraged call to the Province by Enbridge.

Plains Midstream accident comes as Northern Gateway makes its way through review process
When Alberta Premier Alison Redford showed up at the site of the Red Deer River oil spill on Friday, she didn't bring a bucket and mop. She didn't help deploy a boom and she didn't go looking for any oil-soaked animals to rescue.
In terms of being helpful, Redford was about as useful to the cleanup efforts as the media horde that descended on the scene.
But Redford showed up and she showed up quickly.

Over 500 people gathered in David Pecaut Square in Toronto for a water ceremony that led into a march to the Enbridge AGM. Members of the Yinka Dene Alliance, a group of First Nations which have banned the Enbridge pipeline from their territory, as well as supporters have traveled to Toronto on the Freedom Train to send a clear message to company shareholders: The Northern Gateway Pipeline is not allowed on their land.
