TransCanada’s proposed Energy East pipeline would be the largest tar sands pipeline proposed yet, spanning 4,600 kilometres, with the capacity to transport 1.1 million barrels of oil every day.
This controversial project is all risk and little reward. A spill threatens to have devastating impacts on waterways, including drinking water sources. Filling the pipeline would produce more climate pollution than any single Atlantic province. The project is primarily for export and would generate mostly short-term jobs.
We, the undersigned, ask our Mayor and City Councillors to recognize that TransCanada’s proposed Energy East pipeline is all risk and little reward for our community and publicly take a stand against the project.
