Word on the Street

Stop the Flows - No Line 9 Reversal

  • Date: Thursday, September 27, 2012
  • Time: 6:30 pm
  • Location: First Unitarian Church
  • Address: 170 Dundurn St. S. (Google Maps)

Across the continent, communities are struggling to stop the flow of Tar Sands oil through their lands. Opposition to the Keystone XL and Northern Gateway pipelines is denying the Tar Sands a route to the south or west, keeping the oil landlocked in Alberta. Now, Enbridge is seeking to reverse their Line 9 pipeline through Southern Ontario to create an eastern path for it.

Tar Sands oil is the dirtiest oil in the world, and the extraction of it is fuelling catastrophic climate change while poisoning the communities around it. We all have an interest in keeping this oil in the ground and away from our homes.

Join us for a forum and discussion about Enbridge's reversal of the Line 9 oil pipeline. Speakers will describe: - The growing continental movement to stop the flow of Tar Sands oil - Enbridge's refusal to consult with the Haudenosaunee and other First Nations as treaty law requires - The threat to our local watershed, especially the Beverly Swamp, a provincially-significant wetland at the headwaters of the Spencer Creek.

This is a free event, though donations to cover costs will be accepted. The First Unitarian Church is accessible for mobility devices. This is a kid friendly event, and childcare will be available. Light food and drink provided.
