As I’ve previously reported, activists in eastern Ontario are campaigning to stop TransCanada Corp’s “Energy East” plan to pump tar sands bitumen through our communities. In the town I live in, we’re just getting organized. On the other side of the Rideau River, our neighbours in (very much larger) Ottawa are showing the way.
See their excellent new web page: TAR FREE 613 (Clarification for non-Canadians: 613 is the main telephone area code for eastern Ontario.)
- Just say no to TransCanada’s tar sands pipeline
- Ottawa activists launch anti-pipeline campaign
- More to come ….
