On July 25-27, 2012, the Council of the Federation (the council of the premiers of Canada’s thirteen provinces and territories) is holding their semi-annual meeting in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
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.
Canadians: Only Hours to Petition B.C. Premier Christy Clark to Reject Northern Gateway Pipeline
In the following letter, the Avaaz team is asking for our help to:
call on Premier of British Columbia Christy Clark to fully reject Enbridge’s proposal to build a 1177 km pipeline from Alberta’s dirty tar sands through the Great Bear rainforest to British Columbia’s Pacific Coast:
Enbridge’s track record reveals “over 800 oil spills in the last decade!
In 2010, it took Enbridge 17 hours to take action on a disastrous oil spill in Michigan, even though they knew the pipeline was corroded eight years before it happened!”
sign the petition below and forward it to everyone:
When the Avaaz team reaches 50,000 signatures, it’ll be delivered straight to the meeting in Halifax
At the present time of this blog posting, 27,575 Canadians have signed
Please help us get to 50,000 signers by signing the petition in the Avaaz”s letter below:

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
