Press Release: Climate Change Containment Unit Responds to Mock Enbridge Oil Spill

Press Release September 25, 2013
Media Contact: Sally Jefferson | 226-476-1038 | cccu.ontario@gmail.com

CAMBRIDGE —The Climate Change Containment Unit (CCCU) is on scene at the Grand River in North Dumfries today as Enbridge's Line 9 is being subject to an emergency response exercise in anticipation of the 38-year-old pipeline's eventual failure. CCCU spokesperson Sally Jefferson says, “The CCCU is bringing its years of experience with destructive tar sands operations to help mitigate the damage of the pipeline rupture forecast by today's exercise.”

The National Energy Board will decide later this fall on Enbridge's proposal to transport tar sands bitumen and volatile fracked oil from the Bakken fields through Line 9, which has already spilled 12 times in its operational history. “When Enbridge spills, rivers are killed,” says Jefferson, “and today Enbridge is simulating the death of the Grand River.”

She explains, “Line 9 crosses the Grand and Nith Rivers, and a spill—like the one simulated today on the territory of the Six Nations of the Grand River—would compromise the health and safety of the entire watershed and all living beings who depend on it.”
