Enbridge, already the largest shipper of tar sands oil, has filed an application with the National Energy Board (NEB) to reverse the flow of part of its Line 9 oil pipeline. If approved, it would cut Ontario off from oil flowing from the East Coast and shift the province to more polluting tar sands oil.
I am concerned that the project would increase the amount of tar sands oil in Ontario, which creates more greenhouse gas emissions than conventional oil and is more corrosive and dangerous to transport. It would also threaten Ontario's energy security by limiting our sources of oil.
Please use your regulatory authority to ensure a transparent, comprehensive review of the proposed pipeline reversal that considers the interests of First Nations, landowners and the public.
