Stop Line 9: Toronto

Stop Line 9: Toronto.

It’s interesting to know that Enbridge is hoping to appropriate the Line 9 pipeline that passes through Toronto (from Sarnia and Montreal) as a part of a larger plan to get Tar Sands oil from Alberta to Montreal for global export. While the pipeline doesn’t pass through the Junction, but through more northern neighbourhoods, this is certainly an environmental issue we should all be aware of as a spill would affect the water system in Toronto as a whole. Visit the site linked above for more info on how to get involved in resisting the pipeline. This is also a way to stand in solidarity with First Nations, those currently most affected, and to join in on the larger movement against Tar Sands oil.
