|Enbridge Inc. - ENB.t transports and delivers energy through pipeline networks across the continent. |
Enbridge operates the world's longest and most sophisticated crude oil and liquids transportation system, shipping more than 2 million barrels of crude oil and billions of cubic feet of natural gas daily.
The Globe and Mail reports in its Wednesday, Oct. 18, edition that sheriffs turned up at the downtown Vancouver offices of environment group Stand.earth on Tuesday to seek about $14,000 in unpaid court costs on behalf of Enbridge, but within hours, the company backed off. The Globe's Ian Bailey writes that Enbridge did not explain the swift turnaround. Stand.earth campaign director Karen Mahon said there probably was not enough value in the second-hand furniture, including items from her house, and other goods in the three-room office suite to pay that bill. Ms. Mahon said two sheriffs photographed the offices and had her sign an undertaking of responsibility for any items removed by the time they returned with a truck and movers to take everything. The dispute emerged from a lawsuit filed by Stand.earth against the National Energy Board alleging a lack of public consultation over the Line 9 pipeline. In 2014, Enbridge was awarded court costs (note as intervenor). On a point of principle, Stand.earth declined to pay the costs. That decision came back to haunt the group on Tuesday as it was presented with a writ of seizure and sale to produce a total of $14,559.19.
