Tell our elected federal officials to reject the risky Energy East pipeline
The federal government recently approved two new tar sands pipelines, yet it’s still moving ahead with the review of Energy East.
The massive Energy East pipeline proposal would create tremendous risks for our communities, our drinking water, and our shared climate – outweighing any benefit. Energy East would cross six provinces from Alberta to New Brunswick, and directly threaten the drinking water of over 5 million Canadians.
Energy East would also lead to a dramatic increase in oil tanker traffic in the iconic Bay of Fundy, risking harm to endangered species like the North Atlantic right whale. Thousands of fisheries and tourism jobs would be on the line in case of a spill.
Carbon emissions from extracting the tar sands oil for Energy East are expected to exceed the proposed emissions cap in Alberta and risk breaking Canada’s Paris climate commitments.
Make your voice heard! Tell the federal government to protect our communities, our water, and our climate and reject the risky Energy East pipeline proposal.
