October 11, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Ottawa Public Library Main Branch Auditorium, 120 Metcalfe, Basement.
Come learn about the threat of the proposed Energy East Pipeline to our water, our climate and our future, including stories from the frontlines of the Saskatchewan Husky Energy oil spill as well as stories from the mounting indigenous opposition to this export pipeline.
Did you know that the pipeline passes through the south end of the City of Ottawa?
The proposed Energy East Pipeline would also cross the Mississippi and Rideau rivers, two important waterways for residents and tourism. A spill would prove catastrophic for the city and also directly threatens its source of drinking water.
This town hall will take the form of a panel presentation followed by a question period. It will be moderated by the Executive Director of Ecology Ottawa, Graham Saul.
Panelists will include:
- Maude Barlow
- Erica Violet Lee
- Daniel Cayley-Daoust
More details to come.
