> Allies in the U.S. North-East have called for a day of cross-border
action against Eastern tar sands pipelines and we are responding with a “No
Line 9!” block at the Ontario Federation of Labour’s Rally for Rights and
Democracy (https://www.facebook.com/events/489963847693178/).
>
> Enbridge Inc is planning to pump toxic tar sands bitumen through 40
year-old Line 9 meant for conventional crude by as early as next year. The
use of the pipeline will result in 300,000 barrels of increased flow of
bitumen to chemical valley, located on Aamjiwnaang First Nation lands,
declared the most polluted place in North America by the World Health
Organization. From chemical valley to Montreal, Line 9 passes within 50 km
of an estimated 9.1 million people, including 99 towns and 18 First Nation
communities, and runs directly through the Haldimand Tract on unceded
Haudenosaunee territory. In fact, it was the same type of pipeline that
spilled tar sands dilbit into the Kalamazoo River in Michigan two and a
half years ago. People got sick and the site is still being cleaned up.
>
> Tar sands expansion will also speed up global warming which means more
extreme weather, the melting of ice caps, the loss of low-lying land, and
eventually a threat to human existence on the planet.
>
> Please take action with us now, and declare that tar sands, the most
destructive industrial project in the world, will not pass through the
Waterloo Region South of Cambridge, and will not cross the Grand River in
Ayr.
