Hi guys
Just thought I might stir up some sympathy from you on this one.. Please give it a look.
Best Regards
Heather Walters


Let me introduce you to Lake Ainslie, a beautiful part of Cape Breton that is close to my heart. In the mid 1700's my ancestors , MacDonalds from Moidart and MacIsaacs from Canna. came to this area and settled there. my ggggg grandfathr Angus MacIsaac was the first person to be buried there, on the beach at Inverness. They loved the landscape as it reminded them of Scotland. This unspoiled treasure is now being threatened by the Oil Industry. They propose drilling at Lake Ainslie, using a particularly nasty method called "Fracking". Please read the info and go to the attached links. I'm hoping you may feel the urge to sign the petition. Maybe we can get "Scots" from all over the world on board .
Thanks so much for your time! I appreciate it.
Heather

While our life styles are linked to the petroleum industry these exploration companies do not need to use "fragging" in their process of finding more oil. Let's elect political leaders who will make alternate energy supplies a top priority. Only through this means will we be able to protect what little natural habitats are left for us and for our children and their children. The Lake Ainslie basin, which covers most of western Cape Breton, the home of our ancestors and of our grandchildren should be protected from greedy oil explorers.
