The Save Our Seas and Shores – PEI Chapter has just started a petition to the PEI Legislature seeking a moratorium on drilling for oil and gas in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. We aim to collect at least 1,000 signatures and present the petition to the Legislature this April.
We are contacting a few people to ask if you could please print the attached petition, sign it, obtain nine more signatures, and mail it to the address at the bottom of the petition. If you’re also willing to send it on to others, that would be great. For additional information, we’ve also attached our new brochure which lists reasons we need to protect the Gulf and actions people can take.
Some rules regarding petitions that are important for you to know:
- everyone who signs must reside in PEI;
- there is no minimum age requirement;
- the signer’s address should at least include his/her community, province and postal code;
- the text of the petition must not be altered in any way.
We really appreciate your help with this.
