About

S.H.A.M.E. (Sarnia’s Hometown Activist Movement Emerging) is dedicated to leaving the earth in better shape then we found it. To that end we are working towards a more just political, and economic system in which the welfare of our planet and all life on it are put above financial gain.

We are 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.

Enbridge and BP: Two major offenders

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.

  1. Hi there,

    I think your work is really important and would like to collaborate on an asbestos project that needs urgent attention. Please contact me at your earliest convenience.

    Thanks,

  2. Hey S.H.A.M.E folks!

    We just happened across your blog today, and it’s really exciting to see so much news out of Sarnia! Exciting, and a little scary… it seems like you folks are dealing with more than your share of poison and destruction. We unfortunately missed Sarnia on our tour this summer (scheduling’s hard sometimes), but we’re only about two months downstream of you, so know that we’re connected to your struggle there and are grateful for all your work. If all goes well, we’ll make it out your way in the next sunny season. Keep it up!

  3. Hi all — Big, big conference of interest and worth the price of admission in Washington, D.C. next week with lots of opportunities for priceless interactions for info and new connections. Hope to know you’re there! Best,
