TransCanada’s plan to pipe over a million 1.1 million barrels pipe tar sands bitumen — every day! — from Alberta to Canada’s east coast threatens 4,400 hundred kilometres of rivers, lakes, forests, farmlands and communities with environmental disasters.
Its plan to ship that poisonous brew in giant tankers to refineries in Europe and Asia threatens the world’s oceans, and, if approved, will lock in even more greenhouse gas emissions and climate change.
This project makes Keystone XL look small.
But the movement against Energy East is growing. Activists in Northern Ontario have created an excellent website, packed with information that activists across the country can and should use to build public opinion against this latest effort to profit from the world’s worst environmental crime, the Alberta tar sands.
