Politicians listen to businesses
Do you own a business? Are you opposed to forcing the risk of an oil spill on an entire province? Make your opposition public, join hundreds of others and sign the No Tankers business petition.
To the governments of Canada and British Columbia:
"A single Exxon Valdez-like spill would be catastrophic to thousands of families and coastal livelihoods, entire cultures and a spectacular diversity of life. Stop the expansion of crude oil tanker traffic through B.C.'s coastal waters."*
*Full text of the petition is below the form.
Yes we know this is a long form. It's worth it!
We the signatories draw your attention to proposals by Enbridge, Kinder Morgan and CN Rail to expand crude oil tanker traffic through B.C.’s coast to ship oil to Asia, which would put B.C.’s abundant salmon rivers and coast at risk of oil spills. A single Exxon Valdez-like spill could jeopardize thousands of families and livelihoods, entire cultures, and a spectacular diversity of life. That’s why 70 First Nation communities banned these types of projects via the Coastal First Nations and Save the Fraser declarations, which an array of citizens are recognizing as an opportunity to unite in protection of our shared coast and advance reconciliation between First Nations and the rest of B.C. and Canada.
Your petitioners recognize these declarations and the authority exercised therein, and call upon Parliament and the Legislature to use whatever means are available to stop the expansion of crude oil tanker traffic through B.C.’s coastal waters.
Note on online petitions: The governments of Canada and British Columbia still do not officially recognize signatures on online petitions. However, elected representatives and the media DO cite the results of online petitions thereby entering them into the public record. Additionally, the No Tankers campaign has paper petitions circulating. Download a paper version of this petition for individuals or a paper version for businesses and associations.
