Canadians: Stand up to bullying by Harper Government & Big Oil
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’m a Canadian. I care about Canada’s salmon rivers, our pristine West Coast, and wild places like the majestic Great Bear Rainforest. I care about the rights of Canadians to express any view point. And I won’t be silenced.
I speak for future generations. I speak for our ability to openly debate the issues. And I demand that the government stop its attack on democracy, our citizens, and our wilderness.
