In Canada, an Enbridge gas pipeline ruptured, sparking a massive fire and forcing about 100 members of the Lheidli T’enneh First Nation to evacuate their homes in British Columbia. Enbridge is behind a series of controversial pipelines, including the Line 3 oil pipeline, which would carry tar sands oil from Alberta, Canada, to a terminal in Superior, Wisconsin, and whose proposed construction has sparked massive resistance from indigenous communities on both sides of the U.S.-Canada border.
