Around 3500 people crowded onto the front lawn of BC`s Legislature yesterday in a protest against the Northern Gateway pipeline and reintroduction of supertanker traffic into coast islands. Environmentalists, First Nations and even municipalities have joined the fight against the controversial pipeline which has become incredibly unpopular over the past year. The proposed twin-pipe route would link BC`s northern coast with Alberta`s Tar Sands, and cut accross the province`s north to connect with Kitimat coast to export dilbit and import natural gas condensate, crossing multiple First Nations reservations and the Great Bear Rainforest.
