Cornwall Ontario — The Cornwall & District Labour Council presents an evening of information on Line 9, the 37-year old Montreal to Sarnia pipeline running through the Cornwall area. The pipeline is currently the subject of a review by the National Energy Board, regarding an application to reverse the direction of flow and change the contents and volume of material being transported in the pipe. The event will happen Friday, February 21 at 7 pm at the Benson Centre, 800 Seventh Street West, Cornwall. All are welcome.
Emily Conger, president of A2A, the Adirondacks to Algonquin Collaborative, will show how the pipeline could affect the environment and people in the Cornwall region. A2A was an intervener at the National Energy Board last October. Ms. Conger has made similar presentations at Transitions Brockville and a rural Leeds township. In addition to her presentation, the evening will feature The Tar Sands Dragon Opera by Birdbone Theatre, which is touring communities along Line 9.
Q & A to follow presentation and show.
