Canada: Don’t rubber stamp the tar sands


In days, the National Energy Board will start public consultations that could decide the fate of the eastern oil sands pipeline. But they want to freeze out discussion of climate change, and limit the number of people they hear from. Now citizens’ groups are coming together tobuild an enormous combined call for full and fair hearings — click now to join and tell everyone!

SIGN THE PETITION
A group of energy sector insiders look set to rubber stamp the eastern oil sands pipeline, which will cross rivers and cut through communities from Alberta to Québec and New Brunswick — choking the climate, and risking spills of up to 2.6 million litres of oil. 

Shockingly, they say that climate change isn’t their concern.

The good news is that the National Energy Board is about to start public consultations before this crucial decision is made — but they only want to hear from a hand picked few, on topics that they choose.

Right now, citizens’ groups are coming together to make the biggest push yet for a fair and inclusive process that will look at all the issues — if we all add our voices, they will have to listen,or risk a complete loss of public faith.

We only have days before the process starts. Click now to tell these decision makers to put their rubber stamp back in their pockets, and instead protect our precious natural resources and the climate. When 100,000 sign on, Avaaz will bring all our voices right to the NEB’s doorstep in Calgary.
