The Harper Government and Enbridge are trying to convince BC Citizens that a
pipeline through some of the most beautiful, pristine land in the
country is in our best interest.
Enbridge, with a horrible record of 804 spills since 1999, (the latest
as of yesterday Jan 10 in the Gulf of Mexico) says that this will be
their safest yet. This pipeline would carry the dirtiest form of oil on
the planet through harsh, mountainous land, where any attempt to fix a
leak or work a spill will be severely compromised by the geography. In
addition, the pipeline would cross over 660+ fish-bearing rivers and
then end up in Kittimat where super-tankers would load up and navigate
through narrow channels and some of the roughest waters and weather on
the planet !
Harper will also try to legislate his way to a fast-tracking of consent
on the matter, minimizing time for democratic process in terms of
discussion on the issue, where 4300+ speakers are wanting to have their
say in Kittimat. Furthermore, Harper has in the past, influenced the
National Energy Board in order to get Big Oil unfair advantage in the
building of pipelines.
Are we going to stand idly by as our so-called Government puts a loaded
gun on our future and the environment that we need to sustain LIFE ???
Are we going to let Big Oil dictate Government policies while
short-changing our environment for the benefit of a few, serving the
Asian market ??
NO !! THE RISKS OUTWEIGH THE BENEFITS !! If Harper wants to 'brand' us
as Radicals for caring about Canada's environment, then so bit. WE are
Stop the Northern Gateway Project NOW !!
Please sign this petition, send the message, pass the word. This is OUR
generation's fight !! Our children are looking up to us to protect THEIR
interests, not Big Oil's !!!
