Dear Friends,

Canada is at a turning point. Do we want to continue our dependence on climate-altering fossil fuels? Or do we want cleaner, safer renewables?

It’s important that as many people as possible add their voices to this important discussion. Please take a moment to:

  1. Add your voice to the growing movement against pipelines and supertankers carrying toxics through our pristine forests and waterways. Tell your elected leaders that deepening our dependence on fossil fuels is backwards and that you want a national energy strategy that values the environment.
  2. Register your opinion with the National Energy Board Joint Review Committee on the Enbridge Northern Gateway project website. Hearings on the project will continue into 2013, but the deadline for public comment is August 31, 2012.

People and communities along the route depend on clean, healthy ecosystems for their personal health and their livelihoods. Pipeline leaks and oil-tanker spills are inevitable. No amount of short-term financial gain can replace what we stand to lose.

Let’s ask our leaders for a national energy strategy that values the environment.

The David Suzuki Foundation Team

P.S. Please forward this email to your friends and ask them to have their say on Northern Gateway and Canada’s energy future before August 31.’
