Welcome to our website. We have created a blog regarding Canadian pipelines. This is a subject that has seen much controversy by environmentalists and indigenous groups. These groups have made their concerns well known by rallying together and approaching government officials with their claims.
These groups have held demonstrations opposing new pipeline projects, which have ultimately led to major disruptions. For example, the Mackenzie Valley Pipeline, a TransCanada pipeline, was heavily debated and suffered intense controversy, which led to its abandonment in the 1970s.
Although this project was resurrected in 2004 by Imperial Oil, it was then abandoned again in 2017. Environmentalists, indigenous groups, some municipalities, labour unions and mayors are opposed to many pipeline projects because they believe the pipelines pose a threat to local waterways by means of contamination through leaks and spills. Even though there are other means to transport crude oil and fossil fuels, each path presents a different set of hazards.
