Enbridge Pipeline Faces Prospect of Civil Disobedience

PRINCE RUPERT, BRITISH COLUMBIA—(Marketwire – May 13, 2011) – Over 500 First Nations and concerned citizens from across Northwest B.C. gathered in Prince Rupert last night for a rally against Enbridge and its plan for pipelines and oil tanker traffic on the province’s North Coast.

The rally and march, which come less than 24 hours after major protests against Enbridge at its AGM in Calgary, coincided with the annual convention of the North Central Local Government Association (NCLGA), a regional organization made up of town councils from across northern B.C.
