Ottawa, ON – Council of Canadians Energy and Climate Campaigner Daniel Cayley-Daoust had this to say about today’s pipeline announcement:
Council of Canadians activists and chapters from Toronto, York University, London, Hamilton, South Niagara, Guelph, Peterborough, and Thunder Bay protested the NEB's approval of LIne 9. With large rallies and numerous press releases, the message is clear that Canadians are going to fight back.
The Council of Canadians has learned that Enbridge pipelines across Canada will not be retrofitted for another three years, despite missing key safety systems for decades. This neglect has the potential to increase the magnitude of any future spills.
