Wilderness at stake with pipeline project

Two intrepid seekers of truth and fact covered the territory of the proposed Enbridge pipeline into B.C.

The documentary On the Line follows the 2,400-kilometre journey by foot, bike and kayak. We see and vicariously experience how fragile, rugged and precious that wilderness now is. We hear how many persons will ultimately lose their way of life and livelihood for the sake of a relatively small number of permanent new positions.

We must not allow this tragedy to occur. It is worth our very lives to prevent this horrendous destruction to happen.

Keep uniting folks. We must stop this pipeline.
