Petition to Stop the Energy East Tar Sands Pipeline Through Ottawa

To the governments of Canada, Ontario and the city of Ottawa:


Aux gouvernements du Canada, de l'Ontario et de la ville d'Ottawa:

We, the undersigned, demand that our elected officials prevent dangerous tar sands oil from being shipped through our city. A tar sands pipeline would create huge new risks and provide no new benefit for the City of Ottawa.

Nous, les soussignés, demandons que nos représentants élus empêchent que le pétrole dangereux des sables bitumineux soit expédié à travers notre ville. Un oléoduc de bitumen dilué créerait d'énormes nouveaux risques et ne fournirait aucun nouveau bénéfice pour la Ville d'Ottawa.

    Don’t ship it in this state by road, rail or pipeline. Refine it first if you have to.

    The whoel Tar Sands issue needs to be the subject of meaningful, informed, respectful national debate. And we need to refrain from investing in further development and transportation of the toxic substance. “We’re clearly coming to the end of the fossil fuel era. We have the technology to shift to renewable energy, we have the will of the people. The only thing that’s keeping us back is the fossil fuel industry’s hold on our political system. That’s what we need to change.” – Mark Ruffalo

    Who does this pipeline benefit? Who does it endanger? Who will pay to clean-up the environmental damage?

    Do we really want to keep allowing oil companies to do as they wish in the name of the “economy”? What about the environment and people’s health?
