LETTERS OF REFUSAL –
The letters of refusal, entitled “Vous n’entrerez pas chez nous” (You Will Not Enter My Home) are written statements that tell the specific corporation that holds a claim for shale gas on a given property that the owner will refuse to give any access to their land for gas exploration or development purposes.
Here in Quebec, underground resources are owned by the “crown” and the “free mining” system allows corporations to stake a claim on the resources, with no compensation to land owners.
So far, over 35,000 property owners have signed the refusal letter, with a major impact. The letters were officially handed to the government at our National Assembly.
The way it’s done is that maps with all the property delineations (cadastre in French) are obtained from the municipality.
Then door-to-door canvassing is carried out en masse, by mobilizing the network over a week-end to do a whole section or a town. Signed properties are then coloured on the map, showing progress.

LOCK THE GATE ALLIANCE – http://vimeo.com/61188004
Right now, all around this mighty continent, the people are rising. We have united together in the greatest social movement this country has ever seen, and we are ready to stand up and fight for the future of this great big backyard of ours.
For too long our Federal Parliament has hidden behind the states. For too long they have shirked their responsibilities to protect this country and its people. Today we are demanding national reforms to control reckless coal and gas expansion across the continent.
Now, it’s time for change. It’s time for action.
