Just last month, TC Energy’s Keystone 1 pipeline leaked over 350 thousand gallons of tar sands oil in North Dakota, making this the fourth major spill on this pipeline. And now President Trump and the State Department want to fast track the approval of the larger Keystone XL pipeline.
The recent environmental study failed to address the Indigenous rights impacts KXL would have on the numerous tribal nations along its proposed route. It failed to account for each and every scientific study that has shown the devastating impacts Keystone XL would have on our climate. And given the most recent pipeline spill in North Dakota, it is obvious that we cannot allow TC Energy, formerly TransCanada, to build a dirty oil project that severely threatens the pristine waters of the Ogallala Aquifer that rests beneath the territories of the Oceti Sakowin people.
Wopida tanka (thank you) for your help in stopping this dirty tar sands project from being built.
