One of the most powerful foes of the proposed Northern Gateway (ENB) pipeline through northern British Columbia is not a lawyer, conservation group or any of the First Nations who have lined up against the project. It's an endangered sturgeon; only ~335 remain, all of them living in the Stewart and Endako rivers which the pipeline is planned to cross.

    Now, if our environmentalists agreed with the evolutionary theory, they would not be concerned with the loss of a particular species as a new, better adapted species would be evolving to replace it. Therefore the environmentalists who are concerned about the sturgeon must be reactionary right-wing conservatives who oppose progress. Or else they're fishermen who don't want any competition.

    Using well proven HDD (horizontal directional drilling) instead of open-
    cut water crossings should make a well thought out drilled crossing
    of a minor or major river a benign operation. The Mississippi, Atchafalaya River and the Intracoastal waterway each have several HDDxings all of which leave the river bed untouched. We have done several dozen down here in Louisiana since the '70's. frxings
