stop tar sands

A deformed white fish caught in Lake Athabasca near Fort Chipewyan is on display during a press conference in Edmonton, Alta., on Thursday, September 16, 2010. A renowned Canadian scientist says there appear to be similarities between fish deformities found downstream from Alberta’s oilsands and those observed after the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska and Florida’s Deepwater Horizon disaster.

Enough is enough! How many of these accidents do we need to see before we get serious about phasing out our dependence on this dangerous industry. We have a choice to make between charting a course for our future and our children’s future. Saying no to the Keystone XL, Enbridge Northern Gateway, Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline and other proposals means saying yes to safer, healthier communities and getting serious about green jobs that we can feel proud of.
