About The Report:
TransCanada’s proposed Energy East oil pipeline project threatens the drinking water of over 5 million Canadians. This alarming finding is the result of a detailed examination of Energy East’s proposed route across Canada.
From Manitoba to New Brunswick, nearly 3,000 lakes, rivers, streams and aquifers, which are relied upon by millions of Canadians as sources of clean drinking water, would be at risk of oil spills. Just one pipeline rupture in any one of these vulnerable locations could contaminate drinking water sources for years to come.
This report documents the nature and proximity of TransCanada’s Energy East proposal to major municipal and community drinking water supplies. As proposed, the pipeline would threaten the drinking water of a significant portion of Canada’s population across four provinces.
Communities and First Nations from Manitoba to New Brunswick are at risk from the planned massive Energy East pipeline.
Tell the federal government to protect our drinking water and stop the risky Energy East pipeline.
Energy East would pose a massive risk for our drinking water. But the pipeline would create very few permanent jobs for Canadians as up to 90 per cent of Energy East’s oil would be exported unrefined.
