Tell federal Minister of Natural Resources Joe Oliver to say no to the tar sands and to this pipeline.

I got a new call to action from Greenpeace.  I signed this petition to voice my opposition, once again, to the proposed Enbridge Pipeline project.  It reads as follows:
  • Target: Minister of Natural Resources Joe Oliver
  • Sponsored by: Greenpeace
The tar sands are the fastest source of greenhouse gas emissions in Canada and their rapid development has devastated the air, water, forest and land in Northern Alberta. Yet the Harper government is actively supporting the construction of a new tar sands pipeline that would cross 1,000 streams and rivers, many of which are key habitat for salmon and other species. It would pass through dozens of BC First Nations communities and the Great Bear Rainforest. 

Once the pipeline has reached the coast, it would fill 200 supertankers per year. These tankers, each carrying more toxic crude than the Exxon Valdez, would pass through one of the trickiest marine routes in Canada. 

Enbridge has a bad record on pipeline spills, averaging one a week between 1999-2008. 

The Enbridge ‘Northern Gateway’ pipeline proposal is going through public hearings before the National Energy Board.Tell federal Minister of Natural Resources Joe Oliver to say no to the tar sands and to this pipeline. “

Today’s “stone” is Day 160  take action, sign a petition, make a difference,  even one voice can be heard
