Ecology Ottawa has engaged in raising public awareness for the fight against the Energy East pipeline.
TransCanada wants to convert a gas pipeline into one that would transport toxic Tar Sands oil through Ottawa. This pipeline would carry up to 850,000 barrels a day (100 million litres) of Alberta’s tar through sensitive areas around the city including across the Rideau River. An oil spill in Ottawa is a serious threat, putting our residents’ health and well-being at risk.
