Coalition of Landowners Concerned by a Pipeline

Petition: TQM Pipeline, No Thank You

This petition will be submitted to the Project Officer of the Canadian Environmental Assesment Agency which by virtue of the Canadian Law on Environmental Evaluation (the law), invites the public to make known its commentary concerning the pipeline project being applied for by TRANSQUEBEC & MARITIMES PIPELINE, inc. (TQM)

Considering that

the Memphremagog MRC and the municipalities whose territory would be affected by this pipeline are against having the project in their territory;

Considering that

this project is not a public utility because the region has already a supply of gas and because 94% of this pipeline's capacity is destined for the United States;

Considering that

the National Energy Board and Fisheries and Oceans Canada did not take into consideration the alternative of using the original Lachenaie to Highwater route;

the Coalition of Property Owners Concerned by a Pipeline, and the signers of this petition, ask the Canadian Environmental Assesment Agency to require the National Energy Board to make specific findings of fact and to conduct an environmental assessment with respect to the various alternatives: we have a right to this.
