Forest Ethics has launched a new tool that allows you to see the proposed Enbridge pipeline route, hear the voices of the people affected by it, and see for yourself the risk that the proposed pipeline presents.
A report from the NTSB blames Enbridge for last year's horrific pipeline rupture and subsequent spill in the Kalamazoo river.
The National Transportation Safety Board blamed multiple corrosion cracks and “pervasive organizational failures” at the Calgary-based Enbridge pipeline company for a more-than-20,000-barrel oil spill two years ago near Michigan’s Kalamazoo River.
The cost of the spill has reached $800 million and is rising, the NTSB said, making the pipeline rupture the most expensive on-shore oil spill in U.S. history.

Likening the Calgary company’s management of the disaster to the “Keystone Cops,” National Transportation Safety Board Chairman Debbie Hersman said Enbridge failed to adequately address well-known corrosion problems as far back as 2005.
How can we trust Enbridge to build two pipelines safely across nearly 800 rivers and streams in Alberta and British Columbia?”
