16. Is this so the oil companies can build their pipeline

Though some of the most pristine forests left on the North American continent - the Great Bear Rainforest?



National Geographic did a story about the Spirit Bear and the Great Bear Rainforest in August of 2011 (http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2011/08/canada-rainforest/barcott-text). I just got around to reading that issue and it was the first time I had heard that the oil companies were trying to build a pipeline west rather than rely on the Keystone pipeline through the US to pump their oil sands crude.

I don't want the pipeline through the US but even more I don't want a pipeline through such a magical place as Great Bear!
