The Northumberland County chapter of the Council of Canadians has taken its opposition to the Enbridge Line 9 pipeline to Brighton municipal council.
Quinte News reports, "The Northumberland chapter of the Council of Canadians warned [Brighton] council about the dangers posed by the aging pipeline. ...Brighton council wants more time to study issues surrounding the federal government decision to allow Enbridge to change the oil product it carries in pipeline 9, which runs from Sarnia to Montreal and runs through the Quinte region. ...Brighton council will discuss the issue again at its next meeting. [In addition], Pipeline 9 will [also] be discussed at Northumberland County council tomorrow."
Brighton is located about 150 kilometres east of Toronto.
Council of Canadians chapter activists in Ontario and Quebec are actively opposing Line 9.
