Protect our Gulf!
Deeply concerned about the damage that oil development could create in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, star Jason Priestley is asking you to join him in calling for a moratorium on oil and gas in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
This fall, the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board allowed seismic testing for oil and gas to proceed in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Seismic testing, which changes feeding and migratory patterns in fish and marine mammals, is the first step in oil and gas development.
Our worst fear is that this beautiful, shared ecosystem will be put at risk by oil and gas! A spill such as the one that happened in the Gulf of Mexico could impact all five Canadian provinces that bound the Gulf, threatening fish, seabirds, and marine mammals – and the multi-million dollar industries that rely on a healthy Gulf!
