Line 9 Pledge of Resistance

Line 9 Pledge of Resistance

Please join us in signing the Line 9 Pledge of Resistance!

“I pledge to support and/or engage in civil disobedience that may result in arrest in order to stop construction on Line 9”.

Why is this important?

On March 6, 2014, the National Energy Board (NEB) made the reckless and unjust decision to approve Enbridge’s Line 9 reversal project and allow for the transportation of tar sands oil through Ontario and Quebec. But we know that this pipeline threatens our communities, waterways, agricultural lands, and all ecosystems in its path. Moreover, we know that there has been no consent from First Nations along the route of Line 9, making the project illegal under Canada’s own laws. This is part of a broader struggle against tar sands, fracking, and other forms of dirty energy. If the NEB won’t stop this destructive project, we will.
