No Pipelines, No Tankers!

Primary tabs

No Pipelines. No Tankers.The federal government and western provinces are pushing plans for new or expanded pipelines that will move tar sands bitumen and fracked natural gas from where they are mined to where they can be exported. These pipelines will encourage the unsustainable expansion of the tar sands, cause massive environmental damage along their routes, and increase tanker traffic and the risk of oil spills in ecologically-sensitive coastal waters. The Council of Canadians aims to stop these pipelines, calling instead for a national energy strategy and a transition off fossil fuels.
