Environmental Defence Canada urges us to tell Premier Wynne that Ontario should reject Energy East for the following reasons:

“TransCanada wants to build the largest export pipeline in North America. Bigger than Keystone XL, Energy East would carry 1.1 million barrels of tar sands oil from Alberta through Ontario to eastern Canada – every day.

Energy East would put communities in Ontario at risk of tar sands oil spills, but would bring few benefits. Up to 90 per cent of Energy East’s oil is expected to be exported unrefined.

Energy East would increase Canada’s greenhouse gas pollution by an amount equal to putting 7 million new cars on the road. In a world already feeling the devastating impacts of climate change, we shouldn’t be building new fossil-fuel infrastructure that locks us into soaring global warming emissions for decades to come.

Here in Ontario, a public consultation requested by the Province concluded that Ontarians have serious concerns about this project, especially in regards to risks to water, TransCanada’s flawed and incomplete application for the project, and the climate impacts.

Join the growing opposition to this risky pipeline by signing the letter…. Urge Premier Wynne to tell the National Energy Board that Ontario rejects the Energy East pipeline.”

Please urge Premier Wynne to tell the National Energy Board that Ontario rejects the Energy East pipeline, by signing the Environmental Defence Canada’s letter at http://action.environmentaldefence.ca/p/dia/action3/common/public/?action_KEY=15561.

The following video presents Energy East – an export pipeline:

“TransCanada’s Energy East pipeline plan is all about exporting oil. It is not a made-in-Canada energy solution. Up to 90 per cent of Energy East’s oil would be exported unrefined. As an export pipeline, it won’t create many permanent jobs or have lasting economic benefits to local communities. Take action here: http://ow.ly/LQMol
