Tell the federal government all pipelines need a rigorous review
The federal system for reviewing major energy projects is broken.
The National Energy Board is increasingly seen by Canadians as a rubber stamp with little regard for environmental risks, including climate pollution. Arbitrary review timelines are undermining indigenous rights while crucial evidence and the voices of Canadians are routinely shut out.
Additionally, in recent years many of Canada’s longstanding environmental laws were gutted. They need to be fixed before any pipeline review can move forward.
Canada’s new federal government promised to repair the broken review process for energy projects. Tell the government that all pipelines need to go through a new, rigorous review that protects the environment, respects the rights of indigenous peoples and allows all Canadians to have a voice.
