Canada's Enbridge and the Portland-Montreal Line Co., are planning to reverse the flow of the Montreal-Portland pipeline so that tar sands oil can be shipped out of Portland Harbor.

This project might as well be called Keystone XL East!

This project would threaten the following pan-American treasures at risk:

The Grand River Basin- a designated Canadian Heritage River and home to more that 215 at-risk species 
Lake Ontario- a vital link in the Great River chain that provides bounty to millions of Americans and Canadians 
The Saint Lawrence River- the source of half of Quebec's drinking water and a seasonal home for blue whales 
Victory State Forest: a habitat for Vermont moose and migratory birds 
The Connecticut River- a waterway that drains one-third of New England’s landscape and runs through both Springfield, Mass. and Hartford, Connecticut's state capital 
The Androscoggin River- a popular waterway that runs through New Hampshire and Maine 
Sebago Lake- home to a native species of Atlantic salmon and the major drinking supply for Portland, Maine's largest metropolitan area 
Casco Bay- a large and important marine estuary

This plan would endanger the lives and livelihood of millions of Americans and Canadians, as well as countless miles of beautiful land and an untold number of protected species. Sign this petition and save our wildlife, water and way of living!

Letter to
National Energy Board 444 Seventh Avenue SW Calgary, Alberta T2P 0X8 To whom it may concern
I just signed the following petition addressed to: Canadian National Energy Board.

Canada's Enbridge and the Portland-Montreal Line Co. are planning to reverse the flow of a World War II-era pipeline so that tar sands oil can be transported from Montreal and enter the global market through the port of Portland at Casco Bay.

Because the plan would entail the reversal of the flow of oil on the line, millions of tons of heavy, noxious, carcinogenic and highly flammable could spill on to our lands and waterways. As a result, this project threatens the following pan-American treasures:

The Grand River Basin- a designated Canadian Heritage River and home to more that 215 at-risk species
Lake Ontario- a vital link in the Great River chain that provides bounty to millions of Americans and Canadians
The Saint Lawrence River- the source of half of Quebec's drinking water and a seasonal home for blue whales
Victory State Forest: a habitat for Vermont moose and migratory birds
The Connecticut River- a waterway that drains one-third of New Englands landscape and runs through both Springfield, Mass. and Hartford, Connecticut's state capital
The Androscoggin River- a popular waterwar that runs through New Hampshire and Maine
Sebago Lake- home to a native species of Atlantic salmon and the major drinking supply for Portland, Maine's largest metropolitan area
Casco Bay- a large and important marine estuary

This plan would endanger the life and livelihood of millions of Americans and Canadians, as well as countless miles of beautiful land and an untold number of protected species.

With this in mind, I have grown increasingly concerned over this project: this project could endanger the lives of me or my loved ones; this could ruin our environment or shatter our already fragile economy! This is unacceptable.

Stop this reversal project and protect my family and generations to come!
