Opposition politicians, enviromentalists and First Nations activists were quick to attack the Northern Gateway decision on Tuesday.

Many critics of the Northern Gateway decision chose to use humour to attack the pipeline using the #209Decisions tag on Twitter. The meme referred to the 209 conditions that Enbridge would have to meet to get the pipeline built.

Toronto-based writer Stephen Lautens was the brainchild behind the meme which skewered the Harper government's ties to the oil industry and more.
