Thanks so much for signing this petition!

BTW, per Wikipedia, "Anticosti Island is large but sparsely populated (281 people in 2006), with most of the permanent population in the village of Port-Menier on the western tip of the island, consisting chiefly of the keepers of the lighthouses erected by the Canadian government"

From the article: "Shale Gas & oil exploration activities are underway without any independent environmental impact assessment..." Doesn't THAT sound familiar?

NOTHING should be done before an INDEPENDENT environmental impact assessment has been completed! They tried to pull the wool over our eyes by not providing an "independent" environmental impact study before pushing for the start of construction of the Keystone Pipeline. I congratulate those who are fighting for a moratorium! If you don't stand up, the profiteers will walk all over you!

Gladly signed and noted!

apparently some in power with authority do not understand their responsibilities to those sites with such significant designations
