Ottawa Says No to Energy East - Factsheet TarFree613.ca - @EcologyOttawa - fb.me/EcologyOttawa - EcologyOttawa.ca
Quick Summary We are concerned about a recent proposal by TransCanada to send 130 million litres of toxic tar sands oil through the Ottawa area every day through an aging pipeline. The pipeline passes by a large section of the Ottawa River, and goes through the Mississippi River, the Rideau River, and many other waterways. We are urging the public and city officials to reject this proposed pipeline, which would bring nothing but risks to the region. Why does this matter? The pipeline is all risk and no reward for the resident of Ottawa. TransCanada wants to convert a 55-year old natural gas pipeline into one that would transport toxic Tar Sands oil. The oil wouldn’t even stay in Canada, but be shipped out of the east coast on massive tankers. All pipelines spill. After the recent disaster in Lac-Mégantic, Quebec, involving the shipping of oil, the risks of shipping oil near people's houses and sensitive ecosystems has become a central issue for many. Many pipelines are now shipping more corrosive oil from Alberta's Tar Sands, thought to be responsible for even more pipeline ruptures. And when they spill, because of the extra light hydrocarbons (diluents) required to dilute and ship the heavy Tar Sands crude, the spills are harder to clean up, and also cause more damage, as this kind of oil is known to sink and not float. While many argue pipelines are safer than trains, that doesn't mean they are safe. There are at least an average of 2 oil spill per day in Canada, but most go unreported. In fact, if this pipeline were to be built, we would actually see trains shipping more highly flammable goods – because of the need to ship these diluents back to Alberta once they arrive at a port.
In 2010, a rupture in another (40 year old) pipeline carrying Tar Sands oil in Michigan flooded the Kalamazoo River with about 3.8 million litres of the toxic material. That spill cost over $950 million to partially clean up, but even today the company has not been able to clean up the river fully.
This pipeline would threaten the sensitive ecosystem of the Rideau River, which flows into the Ottawa River, with a major oil spill. A spill near the Ottawa River threatens the drinking water for the city. It could also devastate many of the rich farmlands and other ecosystems that surround the city. TransCanada also came under fire last year when one of its engineers came forward to blow the whistle on the company not complying with Canada's (and its own) safety standards, allegations which were later confirmed by government investigation. TransCanada's Keystone XL pipeline has also been widely protested across the United States for the potential environmental impacts. Lastly, we feel that this project commits us to expansion of the Tar Sands in Alberta, which has already created a toxic legacy and many health issues for local residents and First Nations, in addition to being a prime contributor to climate change. If this pipeline were built, the amount of extra tar sands production it would create would be the equivalent of 7 million cars – or the same emissions as the recently shut-down coal plants – before the oil was even burned. We feel the residents of Ottawa are smart enough and deserve the chance to have their say in our city's and our country's future. I want to do something! What can I do? We’re glad you asked! We ask first that you join thousands of others who have signed our petition, which not only sends a message to elected officials that the people of Ottawa don’t want these risks, but also allows us to stay in touch with you. You can also put up a lawn sign (on the right) on your lawn! Please go to TarFree613.ca for more information. Talk to your neighbours, colleagues, elected officials, and let them know why you’re concerned. If you’re interested in being more involved and volunteering, please contact our Tar Free 613 community organizer at [email protected] Who are you? Ecology Ottawa is the capital's largest grassroots environmental organization, and has been working for years to make Ottawa the nation's greenest city.
