The slow destruction of Canada's environment
To Canadian Members of Parliament:
As citizens concerned about the environment, we urge you to pass the Act to Defend the Pacific Northwest. Oil spills from pipeline leaks and tanker accidents catastrophically and irreversibly destroy our environment and we call on you, and especially those MPs representing ridings vulnerable to oil spills, to put people ahead of pipelines and politics by voting to pass this legislation.

Harper’s latest project would ram an 1,177 km oil pipeline from Alberta straight through the heart of BC’s Great Bear Rainforest, to be sent overseas for refining. But a new bill in Parliament would ban the dangerous mega-tankers needed to do it, sinking this reckless plan before it sets sail -- and we know exactly how to get it passed.
When 75,000 people sign on, we’ll run a massive ad campaign in western ridings that face the greatest risk -- and that might hold the key to the next Canadian election. The message to these MPs will be clear: people over pipelines. Vote for the people you serve, or you will lose your job.
