Earth Day Action Alert: Protect Communities Downstream of the Tar Sands

CLICK HERE TO SIGN OUR PETITION


EARTH DAY ACTION ALERT

Dear Friend,

On this Earth Day I am urging you to take a moment and help us fight for the protection of people living downstream of the Tar Sands. The health and well-being of these downstream communities, including Fort McMurray and Fort Chipewyan, has been sacrificed at the altar of economic-growth-at-all-costs.

STOP THE RADIOACTIVE ROADTRIP

UPDATE / March 20, 2014 -- U.S. delays moving armed convoys carrying nuclear waste through Ontario


One day soon, people in Ontario may spot an armed convoy passing through their town. Heavily armed guards will be protecting trucks carrying thousands of litres of radioactive waste containing highly enriched (weapons-grade) uranium in a toxic mixture of acid and countless other radioactive isotopes. It will be the most dangerous transport of nuclear waste ever attempted in Canada.
