Line 9

Despite fierce community resistance, Enbridge began reversing the “Line 9” 300,000 barrel-a-day pipeline in 2011 and began pumping crude oil from Sarnia, Ontario, to Montreal, Quebec, in December 2015. Line 9 passes through 99 towns and cities and 14 Indigenous communities in Ontario and Quebec and endangers critical waterways. The Council of Canadians has grave concerns about the likelihood of Line 9 rupturing and the consequences of a diluted bitumen spill in the heart of the Great Lakes region.
