Sample Script

Hi, my name is {YOUR NAME} and I'm calling today to demand Wood County officials hold the TransCanada corporation responsible for it's belligerent acts towards peaceful protesters and members of the press at the Keystone XL pipeline construction site.

TransCanada has employed off-duty police to abuse and harass peaceful protesters for weeks. But now they're using security forces to interrogate and detain people on private property outside the construction site -- including two reporters for the New York Times.

Politics aside, these bullying tactics are reprehensible and possibly illegal. I ask that your office please look into TransCanada's actions immediately and protect citizens of Wood County by holding them accountable under the law.

Thank you for your time.
