Nebraska Landowners Make Anti-Keystone XL Ad Buy
 

Hastings, NE — Bold Nebraska will be running a new ad on a local Sandhills radio station to counter the misinformation being spread by TransCanada among Nebraska landowners and citizens. The coalition of ranchers and landowners will be matching TransCanada’s ad buy, airing their ads directly after each of TransCanada’s for the next three weeks.

The ad will highlight the confirmation by the State Department’s Final Environmental Impact Statement on Keystone that, contrary to claims by pipeline supporters, the pipeline’s route still threatens the Sandhills and the Ogallala Aquifer: “Nebraska ranchers would like to thank the State Department for acknowledging in their report that TransCanada’s pipeline route still crosses the Sandhills and the aquifer. More than 2,300 wells are at direct risk with a tar sands spill. The State Department says toxic chemicals from a spill can travel miles in just a few days. We never bought TransCanada’s fancy ads. Now we’ve got a report to back up our common sense. Keep our Sandhills tar sands free. It’s our homes we’re protecting.”

In addition to Bold Nebraska’s ad buy, other Nebraska landowners and citizens will be purchasing their own ads on the radio station, to highlight their individual concerns about the pipeline, including the effects of exporting products refined from tar sands, safety concerns, environmental issues, and water and property rights.

Jane Kleeb, of Bold Nebraska, commented on the ad buy: “Citizens and landowners from the beginning of this fight have stood their ground and pushed back on TransCanada’s misleading contracts and ads. They do not know our state. We do, and we won’t let a foreign corporation run roughshod over us.”
