I chose to speak about the northern gateway pipeline being built through bruderheim alberta to kinimat BC. The project was intended to export diluted bitumen to asian markets. Enbridge, the company building the pipeline said on average it would create 217 permanent job. While many argue that creating more jobs is exactly what the economy needs with the drop in oil prices, we simply cannot argue that 217 jobs are worth the devastating events that an accidental leak could cause. I think Canada should be deciding for several generations, meaning a cleaner energy and economical solution.
