Hours to landlock the tar sands

To the Premier of British Columbia Christy Clark :

As concerned citizens we call on you to fully reject Enbridge’s proposal to build a 1177 km pipeline from Alberta through the Great Bear rainforest to British Columbia’s Pacific Coast. The risks are far worse than any rewards Enbridge or any other province could offer and we therefore count on you to resist any pressure from all bodies calling on you to grant approval for the Northern Gateway Pipeline.

Right now, premiers from across Canada are in Halifax to discuss the fate of a dangerous proposal -- a mega tar oil pipeline that would slice through the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest and put its fragile ecosystem at risk. But one woman stands in the way -- and our massive outcry could get her to delay, and even bury this project for good.

B.C. Premier Christy Clark knows that the hugely unpopular deal could cost her party critical votes in the upcoming election, so for the first time, she has publicly said she won’t green-light the project, unless Enbridge and others meet several of her economic and environmental demands. It’s a start, but it’s not enough. If tens of thousands of us act now, we can persuade her to stay firm, delay the project and even carry it to its deathbed

Pressure on Christy Clark is mounting -- as the head of the province where the pipe will end, she has tremendous power to put the brakes on this reckless deal. Call on her to reject the Northern Gateway pipeline by signing the petition below and forward it to everyone. When we reach 50,000 signatures, it’ll be delivered straight to the meeting in Halifax:
