Performance in Protest: Solidarity with Chippewa of the Thames
More about the case:
Enbridge’s Line 9 is a forty year-old pipeline originally built to transport light oil between Montreal and Sarnia. The pipeline passes through the traditional territory of the Chippewas of the Thames First Nation, Northern Toronto, and seventeen other Indigenous communities. In the last few years, the direction of the pipeline was reversed and in December it began pumping heavy tar sands diluted bitumen. The pipeline reversal took place without consultation with, or consent from, many Indigenous nations, which is a constitutional duty of the Crown.
A spill from Line 9, made all the more likely by the age of the pipeline and the heavier oil being transported, would impact innumerable people. It is estimated that there are approximately 9.1 million people within fifty kilometres of the pipeline who could experience health impacts from a leakage. In order to fight Line 9 and the lack of consultation from Enbridge and the Crown, the Chippewas are going all the way to the Supreme Court, facing over $500,000 in legal fees. They need your support.
