S.H.A.M.E. (Sarnia’s Hometown Activist Movement Emerging) is a loose knit network of Sarnia residents who are growing increasingly frustrated by the lack of civic responsibility our corporate neighbors in Chemical Valley are showing. Given recent events we are asking Enbridge and British Petroleum to supply the public with their emergency response plans, and that a complete public review of emergency response procedures be undertaken with haste.
Furthermore, because so many people get their water from the St. Clair River, we as good citizens and caretakers of our waters and waterfronts are compelled to ask Enbridge and British Petroleum to make public the results of their latest pipeline inspection. We insist that a new process of independent public inspections be made to verify that pipeline safety be guaranteed.
Finally, we will be asking the Province of Ontario and the Federal Government to set up independent inspections of all chemical and petroleum pipeline in Canada.
