TransCanada Inc. is proposing to push 1.1 million barrels of diluted bitumen (tar sands oil) from Hardisty, Alberta to St. John, New Brunswick.

Converting a 40 year-old natural gas pipeline in Manitoba and northwestern Ontario, the Energy East pipeline poses serious risk to Anishinaabek Treaty 3 territory, which has 30% of Ontario’s fresh water and supplies Winnipeg with its drinking water.

The rocky and hilly terrain of this region will make it especially hard to reach bitumen spills and leaks, which is exactly why we must stop Energy East. It could also generate up to 32 million tonnes of additional greenhouse gas emissions per year.

Thanks Dandelion for publicizing this effort--the risks are so high anyone should be concerned.

I stand corrected; -It's "only" been 48 years since I was in Ontario, Canada. I had the U.S. Ontario in mind...

Remember Arkansas and Kalamazoo. The old pipelines are 36" in diameter and like Kalamazoo and Arkansas are depleted through the friction caused by the drag resistance agents. They will not handle the heavier Tar Sands crude. To propose this without installing completely new 48" piping through the pipeline's entirety is just asking for another disaster. It's not a question of "if" but "when".

I wish I could participate. Canada does not need any more pipelines.
Stop Stephen Harper!

Just terrible. Maybe signing anything with those people was not a good idea. We are under a terrible drought in Puerto Rico. The eastern portion of the island is heading to three days w/o and one day with water as soon as next week. But the govt keeps opening up the island to Big Business no matter how much water the projects may need!!! Right now people from Costa Rica, the Central America country, are going to build a deluxe "ecological hotel" on one of our town in the central highlands. What water are they to use???

Have signed petitions against both east and west pipelines. Voting for the Canadian Green Party this time as they are the only ones against sending this horrible crude through our vulnerable land and water. Knowing that crude is being sent through those old pipelines east just makes me wonder if anyone in the government or private energy sector has a brain between them.

Thanks Dandelion. This is a very bad idea. But when profit is to be made to h*ll with anything in the way!
