"What is so poingnant about The Enpipe Line is not its length (over 70,000 km) or its capacity (barrels of words per day, the poem as tanker) but, quite simply, its presence. On-line for over a year, the project resonates as a menifestation of mindfulness, a manifesto on devotion to our world and inscribing that attention into the earth and water works of our imagination and our desire for a sustaining world. These poems, drawings, stories, statementswords and gesturesare more than anathemas to Enbridge's Northern Gateway proposal; they are actual and necessary functions of being here, measures of our own animal presence, and witness to a threatening greed and ignorance. Kilometre after kilometre, The Enpipe Line occupies its space by writing in it."
"With The Enpipe Line, poets draw a line in the sand and enact their politics. No longer is the landscape something wistfully elegized; it is the line where poets say no more, not again. Throughout The Enpipe Line we learn to be here, nowlistening to our own breath and believing in something more."
