Line 9 protesters blockade Enbridge site in North York


Via Metro News :

A group of around a dozen protesters have blockaded an Enbridge construction site near Dufferin St. and Finch Ave. W., in opposition to plans to reverse and boost the flow of the Line 9 pipeline.

The protest Monday comes in solidarity with a group of protesters at an Enbridge site near Woodstock, where five were arrested Sunday night.

Though Monday’s protest had already been in the works, Sunday’s arrests added “fire” to their efforts, according to media representative Umair Muhammad.

Muhammad and the dozen or so protesters represent a group of Toronto residents involved in the movement against Line 9, who call themselves Citizens Response Unit for Decontaminating our Environment (CRUDE).

Concerned individuals from Six Nations, Waterloo Region and other nearby communities have shut down an “integrity dig” on Enbridge’s Line 9 pipeline in North Dumfries, Ontario this morning.

Marche des Peuples pour la Terre Mère


Via la page Facebook Marche des Peuples pour la Terre Mère :

Du 10 mai au 14 juin 2014, des citoyens et des citoyennes se rassembleront pour marcher en moyenne 20 km par jour pendant 34 jours. Ils et elles suivront le tracé des projets de pipelines de TransCanada (Énergie Est) et d’Enbridge (inversion de la ligne 9). L’objectif de la marche est de sensibiliser et de renforcer la mobilisation citoyenne contre l’arrivée des oléoducs, de sables bitumineux et les projets d’exploitation des hydrocarbures au Québec. Les marcheurs et les marcheuses s’arrêteront chaque soir pour rencontrer les communautés par le biais de spectacles engagés et de discussions sur ces enjeux qui nous touchent toutes et tous directement.

Partant de Cacouna, où TransCanada projette d’implanter un port pétrolier, et finissant à Kanehsatà:ke, en territoire Mohawk, la marche des Peuples pour la Terre Mère s’inscrit dans une volonté d’unir notre voix à celle des Premières Nations. Ensemble, défendons notre droit fondamental de vivre et d’élever nos enfants dans un environnement sain.


Occupation of Eastern Montreal Chamber of Commerce against Line 9

Via Antidéveloppement :

PRESS COMMUNIQUÉ – Montréal, March 19, 2014 – occupation of the office of the Chambre de commerce de l’Est de Montréal

As part of the day of action against Line 9, an anti-capitalist and anti-colonial demonstration occupied the office of the Chambre de commerce de l’Est de Montréal (CCEM, or « East Montréal Chamber of Commerce » in English). We call for people to participate in this day of action at the moment and in the way that you feel to be the most appropriate, in making a radical break with these patriarchal, colonial, capitalist societies! Today and everyday!

During the October 2013 hearings of the National Energy Board (NEB), the CCEM pronounced itself, in the name of its 1200 members, to be in favour of the reversal of Line 9. Because it speaks of job creation, because it speaks of the maintenance of the « industrial input », which depends upon a constant input of oil at any cost, the CCEM could participate in these hearings as a good representative of the business community. That’s the kind of interlocutor that Enbridge is looking for: « credible » and « rational ».

Line 9: Not Worth the Risk! Report Launch
New report reveals litany of threats posed by Enbridge’s aging pipeline

Friday February 21st, 1:00pm – Region of Waterloo building, 150 Frederick St., Kitchener

As the Line 9 tarsands pipeline reversal decision looms, intervenors in the National Energy Board process have prepared a comprehensive report detailing the many treaty violations, significant social and economic risks, as well as environmental hazards related to Enbridge’s proposal.

Report contributor Sakura Saunders of Rising Tide Toronto remarks, “As intervenors, we were shocked by the information we learned during the NEB hearings. We compiled this report to alert the public that even according to Enbridge’s own data, this pipeline is in no condition to transport such dangerous materials as tar sands bitumen and fracked oil.”

Press release (via Two Row Times) :

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE @RisingTideTor #LockDownLine9 December 3, 2013

(Toronto, ON) Members of Rising Tide Toronto have locked down to equipment at an Enbridge Line 9 river crossing, effectively halting construction. This construction is taking place before the NEB has approved this pipeline reversal project.

This action, taking place on Mississauga New Credit territory, was done in solidarity with Indigenous sovereigntist and environmental justice struggles across Turtle Island. All First Nations Band Councils who participated in the hearings urged the reversal not be granted. Amidst outstanding land claims, there has been absolutely no consultation with any Indigenous communities along the route of Line 9.

Protests in Toronto shut down the NEB hearings

Via CBC :

A string of heated protests in Toronto have led the National Energy Board to postpone hearings into proposed changes to a key oil pipeline running from Sarnia, Ont., to Montreal.

Energy giant Enbridge was scheduled to defend its plan to reverse the flow of a portion of its Line 9 pipeline at an NEB hearing in Toronto on Saturday.

However, after protesters stormed the proceedings at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on Friday,  the NEB issued a news release stating the hearings would be postponed.

“The end of today’s hearing raised concerns with respect to the security of participants,” NEB secretary Sheri Young wrote in the Friday statement.

    Eventually security escorted demonstrators, a few at a time, into the hearing room where Amanda Lickers, representing Rising Tide Toronto, delivered an hours-long presentation to the three-member panel calling for it to reject Enbridge’s proposal.

    The room erupted from three days of restrained presentations into singing, drumming, shouting, chanting and waving flags that read things like, “We can’t drink money,” and “Don’t frack with mother nature.”
