Enbridge blasted by environmentalists for Northern Gateway pipeline video

Groups are pressuring Enbridge to pull an animated video they say doctors the map of the Northern Gateway pipeline and Douglas Channel.

Enbridge is being pressured by environmental groups for its animation of the Douglas Channel.



Enbridge is receiving flak from environmental groups who are saying the company aired a doctored image of the Douglas Channel in their Northern Gateway pipeline promotional video.

The video (above) shows a version of the Channel with several islands removed, according to a campaign launched by Sum Of Us and LeadNow.ca. The two groups are trying to pressure Enbridge to remove the video.

In the lead-in to their animated video, Enbridge states, “This animation is meant for illustrative purposes only. It is meant to be broadly representational, not to scale.”

Below are two photos posted by Lori Walters on Facebook, with the photos being shown on the campaign by SumOfUs.org:
