Tell PHMSA to Immediately Investigate Anomalies in the Southern Leg of TransCanada's Keystone XL

Landowners Against TransCanada

Sign this petition to tell the federal Pipeline Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) to perform its legal duty to protect human health and the environment from TransCanada’s southern leg of the Keystone XL pipeline.
 
PHMSA’s mission is to protect people and the environment from the risks of hazardous materials transportation. Their vision is that no harm results from hazardous materials transportation. PHMSA is failing to fulfill its responsibilities in regards to TransCanada's southern segment of the Keystone XL pipeline.
