Transport Canada OK's Northern Gateway supertankers as Another Kick at the Keystone

There are 2 comments on the CBC News story from Feb 23, 2012, titled Transport Canada OK's Northern Gateway supertankers as Another Kick at the Keystone. In it, CBC News reports that:

Tankers would use Douglas Channel to gain access to the terminus of Enbridge's proposed Northern Gateway oil pipeline at Kitamaat, British Columbia ...

Remember last month when we were all excited because Obama rejected the Keystone XL pipeline ?

Well, the oil companies and pipeline supporters in U.S. Congress and Senate were less excited, and tried to reverse the decision.

But, believe it or not, this is a good news story.

Last week, people across North America came together to send an incredible message to the U.S. Senate. In just 24 hours, more than 800,000 people signed a petition urging U.S. Senators to reject a bid to resurrect the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.

We're encouraged by all the Canadians who have taken a stand on this issue. Stay tuned!
