A dangerous, irresponsible project

– If Enbridge Corp. gets its way, corrosive and toxic tar sands oil may soon flow through its “Line 9” across the heart of Toronto.
– A Line 9 spill in Toronto, like the one in  Michigan in 2010, would be a public health and environmental disaster.
– Enbridge now wants government approval of its Line 9 project.
– Toronto City Council wants a say on Line 9 and will intervene in regulatory hearings.
Toronto residents need to voice their concern. Stop Line 9!
