Sheriffs turned up at the downtown Vancouver offices of an environment group on Tuesday to seek about $14,000 in unpaid court costs on behalf of energy giant Enbridge Inc., but within hours, the company backed off.

Other environmental groups rallied around Stand.earth, formerly known as ForestEthics, on Tuesday with statements on social media and phone calls offering help. Enbridge did not explain the swift turnaround.

Join us in today's tweet storm, as a first step in changing this debate.
