Environmental Defence

Thanks for signing the petition! Here's the next step.

Can you take five more minutes to write your own comments to the Ontario Energy Board? Personal letters are highly valued by the OEB and we have a goal of sending 1,500 letters by mid-March.

Make your written submission to the OEB here.

Here are some points you could include in your letter. Energy East would:

  • create as much climate pollution as putting seven million new cars on Canada’ s roads.
  • have a significant risk of an oil spill, threatening the natural environment, drinking water and the health of hundreds of communities across Ontario
  • impact the 21 First Nations communities it runs through in Ontario
  • impact natural gas rates for eastern and northern consumers
  • be mainly an export pipeline that will not deliver a single drop of oil to Ontario.

Bottom Line: Ontario cannot be a climate leader and still support this all risk, no reward pipeline proposal.

When you've finished, please enter your email below to confirm that your letter has been sent.
