Enbridge Up Slightly Even As Events Held Across US/Canada to Mark Pipeline Spill Anniversary

Enbridge Inc (ENB.TO) is up 6 cents to $41.42, on volume 260,000. The shares are trading near a yr high.

Today is the second anniversary of the largest inland oil spill in US history (caused by a ruptured Enbridge pipeline). Public events against future pipelines carrying hard to clean up tar sands oil took place in 29 cities, including Montreal, Toronto and Edmonton and in smaller communities including Bella Bella and Smithers.

"An Enbridge spill could happen in Canada at any time, which is a tremendous concern given that the toxic goo in tar sands sinks and is proving impossible to remove from water," said Adam Scott of Environmental Defence. The group, along with ForestEthics, Greenpeace, Sierra Club Prairie and 350, held events across Canada.
