How Tar Sands Threaten Our Communities

August 25, 2013

When: Sunday, August 25 — 2pm
Where: East York Civic Centre, 850 Coxwell Ave., Toronto

Featured speaker: Ben Powless, Mohawk environmental advocate organizing Ottawa’s community campaign against tar sands pipeline. Ben works extensively with the Indigenous Environmental Networks on climate policy.

… along with East End Toronto community voices.

Meeting begins with a short video on tar sands.

Concern is growing. Word is getting out about Enbridge Corp.’s plan to convert an aging cross-Toronto pipeline (Line 9) to transport a toxic mixture of bitumen (tar) and chemicals.

Hundreds of East End Toronto residents have expressed alarm about the dangers of a spill and the effect on climate change. Our public event August 25 will enable community voices to be heard with lots of time for discussion.
