Sierra Club of Canada

April 2, 2008

Hi! Moments ago, opposition party leaders Stéphane Dion, Gilles Duceppe and Jack Layton signed a historic pledge to fight climate change. The KYOTOplus pledge is part of a national global warming petition campaign launched today on Parliament Hill by Sierra Club Canada and a broad collective of environmental and public interest organizations. The Prime Minister and Environment Minister John Baird were also invited to sign the pledge, but declined.

I am giving you the inside scoop so that you can be among the first to sign the KYOTOplus citizens petition. I am especially encouraging you to use the Send-to-a-friend feature to jump start the momentum on this petition today. Please go to:

Environmentalists win landmark Tar Sands lawsuit

Court finds gaping holes in environmental assessment

Edmonton March 05, 2008

The Federal Court of Canada today released a judgment finding fatal legal errors in the environmental assessment of the Kearl Tar Sands Project, north of Fort McMurray.

Ecojustice lawyer Sean Nixon was in court in January on behalf of the Pembina Institute, Sierra Club of Canada, the Toxics Watch Society of Alberta and the Prairie Acid Rain Coalition .

“This is a huge victory,” said Nixon. “The Court accepted our position that the environmental assessment was flawed, and that the Joint Panel failed to explain why it thought the Kearl Project’s environmental effects were insignificant. We will now consider whether to bring another lawsuit to challenge the project’s federal permit that was granted without legal authority.” Read more about Environmentalists win landmark Tar Sands lawsuit

Controversial Kearl Tar Sands project goes to court

While Alberta Premier goes to Washington, the Kearl Tar Sands Project is going to court

January 14, 2008

EDMONTON - While Alberta Premier Ed Stelmach is in Washington this week seeking to assure Americans that there are no environmental problems associated with dirty tar sands development, Canadian environmental organizations are going to court tomorrow to challenge a massive tar sands operation north of Fort McMurray, Alberta. Imperial Oil's proposed Kearl Tar Sands project includes an open-pit mine that would strip 200 square kilometres of Boreal Forest and contribute to the devastation of the region's landscape and wildlife.

Ecojustice lawyer Sean Nixon will be in court on behalf of the Pembina Institute, Sierra Club of Canada, the Toxics Watch Society of Alberta and the Prairie Acid Rain Coalition, arguing that the environmental assessment of the open-pit mine project was flawed and that the project should be halted until a proper assessment has been completed.
