Province cartoonist Dan Murphy is back at it - poking fun at Enbridge's laughable marketing campaign for the proposed Northern Gateway Pipeline. (Incidentally, The Common Sense Canadian first alerted the public to Enbridge's deceptive animated map back in February).
This time, it's a spoof on the company's bucolic animation of the pipeline and tanker route, derided by the public and media of late for its airbrushing out of the significant geolocial and environmental challanges to the project posed by BC's rugged landscape and coast. This latest cartoon comes on the heels of the one he made several months ago, taking on the company's newly-launched TV ad. That spoof stirred up major controversy as it emerged Enbridge had leaned on The Province's parent company, Postmedia, to yank the cartoon, under threat of pulling a million dollars of advertising from the media chain. Murphy bravely went public with the situation, which helped the cartoon to go viral, giving both the paper and Enbridge a black eye in the process.
