Proposal from Enbridge to bring an oil pipeline and supertankers to this fragile and rugged coast.
As a child I was amazed how a tiny seed could grow into such a luscious plant. I learned what it meant to have a “green thumb” by carefully watching my relatives who gardened; some tended the soil which nourished the seeds while others left the seeds to fend for themselves.
