Robyn Allan: Canadian for the Great Bear

“My name is Robyn Allan. I am an economist and a Canadian for the Great Bear.  The Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline Project is not in the economic, environmental, cultural or social interests of Canada and I am asking all Canadians who support sustainable development and responsible environmental protection to stand with me in protecting the Great Bear.”

Robyn wrote the report “An Economic Assessment of Northern Gateway,” submitted as evidence to the National Energy Board. And she is standing up today for the Great Bear region of British Columbia because she believes this is no place for oil pipelines and tankers. Join Robyn and Canadians across the country.
