On December 19, 2013, the National Energy Board’s Joint Review Panel for the Enbridge Northern Gateway Project released a report claiming that the benefits of the pipeline outweigh its risks.
Clearly, that’s not the case.
The reality is that Canadian citizens will take on the large-scale risk to our land and our water while multinational corporations and foreign refineries will take on the economic benefits.
The Conservatives have until June 17th to make a decision on Enbridge’s risky project. That means there is still time to convince the Harper administration that Canadians do not want this pipeline.
It’s not too late to make your voice heard.
Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver has acknowledged that public pressure could stop the construction of this pipeline:
“In a democracy, governments are responsive to the will of the people. I think any government would take into account if there was a change of attitude.” -- Joe Oliver on the Northern Gateway pipeline, January 2, 2014
Act now -- add your name with thousands of other Canadians to tell the Harper Administration that this pipeline is not in your economic or environmental interest.
