Blow the Whistle on Polluter Abuse! [Audio]

from Wildlife Promise

Trans Canada Hotline BannerNebraska landowners and citizens will be able to blow the whistle on the heavy-handed tactics of Canadian oil giant TransCanada starting today.

TransCanada is the company trying to run the dirty fuel into the U.S. along a 2000 mile proposed pipeline almost certain to leak. The fuel is awful for the environment, emitting three times the carbon emissions of conventional oil and gas.

Widespread media reports say the company has attempted to strong-arm residents into putting a risky pipeline on their property. Having witnessed a series of high profile pipeline incidents around the country recently, area groups concerned the pipeline will eventually leak, spill or explode in sensitive areas like the Sandhills, Platte River and Ogallala Aquifer. A recent poll found Nebraskans oppose the pipeline by more than two-to-one.

The groups launched a toll-free tip line, radio ads and a website that urges landowners, concerned citizens and TransCanada employees to confidentially report abusive and questionable acts.  To learn more, report abuse, and listen to the radio ad, visit www.TransCanadaAbuse.com.
