Mackenzie pipeline report online December 30, 2009
As another pipeline proposal comes to the headlines in Canada, aboriginal groups and communities in the Northwest Territories of Canada continue to ponder the idea and possible outcomes of this environmentally destructive opportunity.
CBC News released that a report by the Joint Review Panel is set to be released later today which provides analysis of all sides of this proposed venture by the Makenzie Gas Project including "the socio-economic and environmental impacts" of the project.
The report has been anxiously awaited by the proponents of the proposed pipeline, which would run more than 1,200 kilometres through the Northwest Territories' Mackenzie Valley to the Alberta boundary.
With names such as Conoco, Shell and Exxon attached to this massive pipeline project Canada need only wait for September and the final decision to be made by the National Energy Board. However, a review that "was only expected to take 10 months" ended up taking almost six years to complete due to heavy environmental stress this project will put on the already sensitive Canadian north.
