Your email indicates that the stuff moved through the pipeline includes carcinogens other than those included in the tar sands oil.  Do you have any information on what carcinogens these might be?

       Hello Neighbor, 
I am writing to you about a subject I know you will want to know about because it affects everyone’s health. 
A Canadian company is using eminent domain to seize land in Oklahoma and Texas for the purpose of running a pipeline carrying a poisonous mixture of tar sands and carcinogens. This Keystone XL pipeline, running from Canada to Texas, is a larger version of one that has spilled far more than the company building it would like you to know.
2010: July 25-26: A tar sands pipeline operated by Enbridge Inc. spilled around one million gallons of tar sands oil into the Kalamazoo River. Because tar sands oil is unlike conventional crude and more difficult to clean up, the river is still undergoing clean-up as of December 2012 and will likely never be fully cleaned up.
The original Keystone pipeline has been in operation less than one year. Its owner TransCanada predicted no more than one spill every seven years. Instead of one spill every seven years, oil has spilled 11 times in the last year. Since the pipeline will pass over 2 major aquifers as well as many rivers, spillage is not to be taken lightly.
Similarly, the number of jobs created by the pipeline has been vastly over-rated and the refined oil is destined for China, not the USA.
A coalition of people in Texas has been fighting this pipeline under the banner Tar Sands Blockade. They are a talented, dedicated group from all over the USA and are having great success but they need help in Oklahoma. We are about to hold our third Oklahoma organizing meeting on December 29th.
 I hope you will join us. There are many levels of involvement so there is a place for everyone. People from the Texas group will be there to assist.
