Toronto, ON – It is expected that federal cabinet will release its decision on Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline and tanker proposal today at 4:00 p.m. ET.
Environmental Defence spokespeople will be available to comment on the decision. 
Environmental Defence raised awareness about the risks of this proposal, and the government’s aggressive attempt to try to convince Canadians that the risky project is in the “national interest,” while smearing those opposed to it – including citizens, environmental groups and First Nations.
