Opponents of Northern Gateway prepare to fight with protests and poetry as Joint Review panel makes its recommendations
The Joint Review Panel makes its recommendations on the Northern Gateway pipeline this afternoon.
Former president of the Haida Nation and B.C.'s former chief Treaty Commissioner Miles Richardson believes the recommendations will be in favour of the project, and is preparing for a fight.
"People in the northwest of the province, on the coast, have very serious concerns about the potential effects on their way of life, on the health of their waters, on their lands... They're not gonna just let some panel process whitewash their concerns"
Listen to Betsy Trumpener's full interview with Miles Richardson:
Carole Brown is one of those opponents. She is a school teacher in Prince Rupert who is fighting Northern Gateway with poetry.
After Enbridge placed poems about the ocean in newspapers, she decided to fire back with some poetry of her own, warning about the risks a pipeline project could pose to oceans.
Daybreak's George Baker went with her as she asked businesses to display the poetry on their doors and windows.
