GreenPeace Against Pipelines and For Clean Energy Future

6 05 2014
Hello Shaun

From Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway Pipeline to Keystone XL, Line 9 and Energy East, there are looming decisions on dangerous pipelines and extreme energy projects across Canada.

To pave the way for the Northern Gateway pipeline in British Columbia, we’ve seen the Conservative government remove the endangered status of the humpback whale as well as threaten our provincial parks with the approval of Bill 4.

In Quebec, Beluga whales are at risk from seismic testing in the St. Lawrence to make way for the proposed Energy East pipeline.

Toronto is even feeling the effects of the tar sands. Every day, trains carrying crude oil travel through the city on train cars that were never built to carry such dangerous loads.

Canada is at an important crossroads. Instead of betting our economy on dirty fossil fuel our government should be joining countries worldwide by investing in renewable energy.

This Saturday, May 10 people across Canada are standing together to call for a just, safe and clean energy future. People in communities from coast to coast will be coming together in dozens of independently organized events to oppose tar sands pipelines and say no to the Canadian government’s dirty oil agenda. Will you join them?

The movement to build a green and peaceful future is growing, and you are a part of it. Please defend our communities from a dirty energy future by coming out to an event in your community this Saturday.

Below is a list of Defend Our Climate, Defend Our Communities events happening in major Canadian cities. Don’t see your community on the list? No problem! Visit www.defendourclimate.ca to find the full list of events happening across Canada.
