Action Alert: Energy East Letter Campaign

December 11th, 2014

Premier Kathleen Wynne made a mistake yesterday. You can call her out on it.

Last week, alongside the Premier of Quebec, Wynne announced seven conditions for the Energy East pipeline.

The pipeline would fail any serious review of these conditions. That’s why the premiers of Alberta, Saskatchewan and New Brunswick who support the pipeline reacted so quickly and fiercely, in an onslaught of lobbying and media criticism.

Premier Wynne has since backed down from her stronger position on Energy East. In a press conference alongside Alberta’s Premier Prentice, Wynne suggested that her conditions will not include the upstream climate pollution impacts of filling the pipeline.

That’s like trying to understand the environmental impacts of printing a newspaper without considering the trees cut down to make it.

It’s time to take action. Email the Premier to let her know that you expect her to seriously apply the seven conditions for Energy East and reject the pipeline.

If Ontario wants to be a climate leader and protect critical provincial waterways, we must say “no” to Energy East.

Thank you so much for taking action.
