Dear Sierra Club Maine Supporter,
The Canadian oil and gas giant Enbridge is proposing to pump dirty tar sands oil from Quebec to South Portland where it would be shipped by tanker to the Gulf of Mexico. The pipeline would pass next to Sebago Lake, the drinking water supply for more than 15% of Maine people, and could endanger Casco Bay and our vital fishing industries.
Learn more about the environmental and safety risks and how to get involved in the campaign by attending a public forum at 7 pm on Thursday, February 9 at the Glickman Library at the University of Southern Maine’s Portland campus.
National tar sands experts from the Sierra Club, National Wildlife Federation and Natural Resources Defense Council will present the facts and lead a discussion about preventing this risky project.
The forum, co-sponsored by Sierra Club Maine and Natural Resource Council of Maine, is free and open to the public, but space is limited so please RSVP.
Here are the details:
Who: You, fellow Sierrans and the concerned public
When: 7:00 pm, Thursday, Feb. 9
Where: University Events Room, Glickman Library, University of Southern Maine, Portland
RSVP: Event is free, but space is limited, so please RSVP.
If you can’t attend the forum but would like to stay informed about our “Stop the Maine Tar Sands Pipeline” campaign, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for all you do to protect Maine's environment.
Maine Chapter Director
