After the Mayflower spill, make our voices heard
Today, as Enbridge executive Janet Holder prepared to address the BC Chamber Energy Summit on the topic “What’s in a pipeline for BC?”, I was just outside the conference site helping dozens of protestors assemble a 30-foot pipeline prop.
We couldn’t trust energy giant Enbridge to answer the question honestly, so ForestEthics Advocacy and other environmental groups staged a mock oil spill to send a clear message that pipelines in BC will mean oil spills in our fragile wild salmon watersheds.
Several TV cameras arrived to film the crowd of 30 demonstrators chanting and distributing literature to curious passers-by as suit-clad executives looked down nervously from the hotel above.
Today’s action was a success but the battle against Enbridge’s greenwash is far from over—and we need your help!
Last week Enbridge tried to greenwash their devastating 2010 Kalamazoo River oil spill, telling investors the river was “cleaner than it was before”, the same day as the EPA ordered them back to work to clean up submerged oil that continues to threaten the watershed.
Tell Enbridge’s CEO that we want clean water, not greenwash. Take action now: http://bit.ly/WSXysu
