Canadians: Stand up to bullying by Harper Government & Big Oil

    1. Sponsored by

The Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline and tanker project proposes transporting Tar Sands crude from Alberta to British Colombia's north coast. The pipeline would cross about 800 of Canada's waterways, including our important salmon rivers, before reaching the coast of the majestic Great Bear Rainforest. The project would also introduce high risk of oil spills from tanker traffic on that pristine coast, given its treacherous waters. 

This is a matter that deserves an open debate by the Canadian people, not intimidation and scare tactics by our own government. Demand that the government stop its attack on democracy and our citizens for standing up for the environment, First Nations, and wildlife.

      I can't believe the country for voting this nitwit into office. Give nature the respect it deserves!

      I can't believe we elected this nitwit into office.

      Harper, do you not realize the ridiculously VAST amount of ecosystem services that you depend on? By pushing this initiative, you are essentially saying "screw you" to the environment. You also say "screw you" to all the trees that provide your oxygen and lumber, all the natural processes that clean our water, and all the ascetic beauty of nature. STOP messing with nature, because if we don't do something soon, it will start messing with us.

      Stephen Harper needs to listen to the people, the scientists, & the enviromentalists. Canada is a democracy! We all have a say, & most people know this is short-term gain for a long term loss. An oil spill is inevitable, the damage irreversable. Not worth it, we don't want it!!
