Meet with People not just Oil Execs

    1. Petition by

      Greenpeace Canada

After 3-major oil spills hit Alberta in just over a month a network of landowner, health, labour and environmental groups called for an independent review of pipeline safety in the province. The network, which now represents over 60-groups, was worried about the impact oil spills have on communities, on public health, and on a fragile environment. Given the 3 major spills and the over 600 pipeline incidents that hit Alberta’s aging pipeline network every year the groups thought an independent review was a good way to get answers to Alberta’s pipeline problems.

After tremendous public pressure the Alberta government finally announced a review but they are shutting the public groups out of the process. Even though the Alberta government has found the time to meet with oil and gas companies about the review they have yet to meet with any of the 60-groups that called for it.

Don’t you think the Alberta government should meet with public groups not just oil company executives?

      Canada and Alberta are under-performing in sustainable resource development. Norway has built a debt surplus of $650 billion with effective management of their oil reserves. Alberta has way more oil and a rainy day fund of 15 billion - we need leaders who represent the people and the land more than they represent corporations.

      You should really pay attention to what your voters desire rather than toadying to the greedy tar sands companies.

      Because I live in Canada, I am a part of this earth. Expanding the oil industry will ONLY have a NEGATIVE effect on the environment and it will impact EVERYONE I know, including myself, NEGATIVELY. WE CANNOT EAT MONEY!
