Protestors target Toronto pipeline site

Hamilton, ON, Canada / AM900 CHML

A group of protesters is interrupting work at yet another Enbridge pipeline site, this time, in north Toronto.

The blockade at Dufferin Street and Finch Avenue West is the latest in a series of actions to protest the company’s controversial Line 9 project.

A spokesman for the group, dubbed the Community Response Unit for Decontaminating our Environment, says the protesters are attempting to stop the project and stand in solidarity with previous demonstrations.

Enbridge plans to reverse the flow and increase the capacity of Line 9, which shuttles oil between Sarnia and Montreal.

It also runs through Flamborough’s Westover Pumping Station, where demonstrators interrupted work last June.

Critics argue that the pipeline puts the environment at risk and there has been little consultation with aboriginal communities.
