Enbridge & The Enpipe Line

I’ve got a poem called “Low Frequency Abundance” in Christine Leclerc’s Enpipe Line, a poetry collaboration in resistance to “dreams of social and environmental destruction.”  The Enpipe Line opposes The Northern Gateway Project, a proposal by the Canadian gas and oil shipping company Enbridge to build a multi-billion dollar pipeline from the Alberta oil sands to British Columbia, passing through 80 First Nations territories and 1,000 rivers and streams.  My poem draws on words from the regulatory application that the Enbridge Northern Gateway Project submitted to the National Energy Board in May 2010; a decision is expected by early 2013.

Also, see Leclerc’s statement about the Enpipe Line in the latest “eco” issue of Interim and the sequel of my poem in experiential-experimental-literature.
