The ThreatSeismic blasting is threatening life in the Arctic.
Seismic blasting threatens all life in the Arctic. Air cannons fire at the seabed every 10 seconds, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in the search for oil we don’t need, putting communities and marine life at risk. Together, we must ensure dangerous seismic blasting isn’t permitted in these fragile Arctic waters.
The Supreme Court Case
The courageous people of Clyde River are awaiting a Supreme Court ruling on their fight for Inuit rights and Arctic protection. The Canadian government failed to properly consult with the community (as required by law) before granting permits for companies to blast the Arctic in search of oil. Their case will be heard alongside the Chippewas of the Thames First Nation , who are taking a stand to protect their land and water from the risky Line 9 tar sands pipeline. Both verdicts could have profound implications — across Canada and globally.
