What will the Pacific look like if the Northern Gateway Project goes ahead? 

Sing along as Just Theatre commemorates Enbridge's 20,000-barrel oil spill in Kalamazoo — and the chance to get one just like it on the pristine B.C. coast!

Lyrics:

A B C D E F G H
I got a spill
In Kalamazoo
It's heavy crude
That the Enbridge pipe spewed
In Kalamazoo

17 hours
The damages grew
Warned of the leak
They kept filling the creek
In Kalamazoo

They're gonna send a pipeline
To the BC coastline
What will be left?
Supertankers
Come and drop your anchors
Fisheries and forests?
They don't give an...

F G H I J K L M
N-bridge was warned
For 5 years they knew
The pipeline was cracked
But they didn't react
Until it all blew
Now they're in Canada
So we can have another Kalamazoo
