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.”

L’office national de l’énergie nous dit que les seules personnes qui peuvent s’exprimer aux audiences sur la Ligne 9 et d’autres pipelines sont celles qui se qualifient en tant qu’individu «directement touché/e».

Nous considérons que ce sont de fausses prétentions : nous sommes TOUS/TOUTES directement touchéEs. Nos communautés, nos aliments, nos terres, notre eau, notre air et notre futur sont tous touchés par l’acheminement du pétrole provenant des sables bitumineux avec la Ligne 9, le pipeline Énergie Est de TransCanada, le pipeline Montréal – Portland, et tous les autres pipelines. Exprimez comment vous êtes directement touchéEs, de la façon la plus significative pour vous:
