Abstract:  The No Pipeline Now Coalition is a broadly based grouping of churches, international agencies and native support, public interest, and labour union groups. The central purpose of this coalition is to push for a ten year moratorium on the construction of the Mackenzie Valley Pipeline(or any alternative pipeline route).
The coalition feels that the pipeline will tie Canada's resources into an export-oriented pattern of energy development based on American needs. This will mean higher energy costs for Canada and a further depletion of non-renewable energy resources. Other effects would include the disruption of employment patterns and economic equilibrium. The coalition is also concerned about threats the pipeline proposes to the life-style of the Dene and other northern native people as well as the environmental impact. In view of the Government's upcoming decision on the pipeline (Sept. 1), the coalition urgently requests all Canadians to write their M.P.'s about this issue. Write to the coalition for further information.

This organization no longer exists.
