Earth Day Activities in Guelph Attract Many
by Rob Flanagan ( Guelph Mercury April 22/12)
[O]n Sunday, a small group gathered for Mother Earth Day at 10 Carden on Carden Street, organized by the Guelph chapter of Council of Canadians. Musician and activist James Gordon was on hand with his guitar and vocals.
Norah Chaloner said one focus of the event was to raise awareness of recent developments related to the Line 9 oil pipeline that runs from Sarnia to Montreal.
Enbridge wants to reverse the flow of the pipeline and use it to transport a more corrosive type of oil originating from the oilsands of northern Alberta. Chaloner said repurposing Line 9 would increase pressure in the pipeline, thereby increasing the risk of oil spills and environmental contamination across Ontario.
After the families with children left, The Enbridge Oily-pus showed that he could be mean and nasty!
