PETITION TO PREVENT PASSAGE OF LNG TANKERS THROUGH HEAD HARBOUR PASSAGE, CAMPOBELLO, NB, CANADA

The Passamaquoddy Region earns over a billion dollars annually from resource-based industries. A unique natural richness provides the environment that supports these industries. LNG terminals will substantially interfere with our enterprises and right to a healthy and safe environment.

We affirm our belief
that the Passamaquoddy Region which encompasses all of Charlotte County, New
Brunswick; the eastern corner of Washington County, Maine; and all of the
associated islands offshore to Grand Manan, is a socio-economic unit that earns
over a billion dollars per year from its resource-based industries of
fisheries, tourism, aquaculture and associated enterprises. Further we attest
that it is the unique natural richness of the Quoddy region that provides the
waters, the whales, the fish, and the environment that supports these
industries. The LNG terminals proposed for
Passamaquoddy
Bay
are totally inappropriate to the area and will, in
fact, substantially interfere with the business activities that are the
foundation of this area’s wealth as well as our right to enjoy a healthy
environment and safety for our families.





We urge the Government of Canada to assert
its sovereign rights and to declare no rights of passage for LNG tankers
through
Head Harbour Passage
based on Canadian law and the precedent set in 1976 when oil tankers were
refused passage.
