Why do we walk?
To protect our community.
To oppose the tar sands and the Energy East pipeline
Because this 42-inch diameter export pipeline also implies a 150-hectare tank farm situated right in the middle of the rural community of Red Head, a 183-hectare marine terminal complex and some supertankers carrying 2.2 million barrels of oil crossing over the Bay of Fundy which threaten :
- The traditional lands of the Wolastoq (Maliseet) First Nations
- The 1500 residents of Red Head
- The Saint-John River, its tributaries and the drinking water of hundred thousand people
- The Bay of Fundy’s rich biodiversity and endangered species like the North Atlantic Right Whales
- Our climate

Over 500 people marched in Red Head, at the end of the proposed Energy East pipeline in Saint John, New Brunswick on Saturday May 30th. Community residents stood with First Nations to protest TransCanada’s proposed pipeline that would bring 1.1 million barrels of tar sands oil and build an oil tank terminal on the shore of the Bay of Fundy.
