SIGN TH PETITION :: AND SHARE “Enbridge wants to increase the amount of tar sands crude flowing through an existing pipeline from Alberto to Superior WI. It is called line #67 aka the Alberta Clipper. The expansion project would move 880,000 barrels of toxic tar sands oil every day (that’s 50,000 more than the Keystone XL pipeline) to Superior, Wisconsin! The State Dept is taking comment on this expansion and the comment period ends May 13.”

The State Department has given the green light to Canadian energy giant Enbridge to pipe more dirty tar sands oil from Alberta to the Great Lakes region -- without the legally required environmental review.
