Prime Minister Stephen Harper 1600-90th Avenue SW Suite A-203 Calgary, Alberta, T2V 5A8
To: Mr. Stephen Harper I am Phoebe Yue a grade 7 student from Collingwood school. I am writing this letter to inform you that I completely disagree with the Northern Gateway Pipeline Project. I understand that the economic benefits of this pipeline are important but the environmental issues that the pipeline will cause are more important. Firstly, the great spirit bear has been put into HUGE danger because of this pipeline. The spirit bear is not only your typical black bear. The spirit bear is a beautiful white bear that can ONLY be found in Canada BC. around the world!! There is only a small number of this endangered species and putting their lives in even more danger is just plain cruel. Secondly, There is a estimated oil spill every sixteen years for every 1000 km length!! An oil spill this big will harm humans, animals (such as spirit bears), plants etc. Plus, the spill will pollute nearby waterways which will harm humans. There have already been people getting migraines and seizures from tar sands. We dont need any more harm done to humans, animals, plants, etc. We dont need the pipeline to affect our daily lives..
