Aboriginal activists could protest over Enbridge pipeline
Enbridge defends its Flamborough pipeline plan

A pair of Six Nations activists told Hamilton councillors they will stage a violent protest — if need be — to fight against the Enbridge pipeline plan.

Wes Elliott and Ruby Montour, Haudenosaunee activists who have been behind numerous land-oriented protests in Brantford, told the city's general issues committee Wednesday that they will fight Enbridge's plan.

The company plans to reverse the flow of oil going through Line 9, which cuts across part of Flamborough on its way through southern Ontario.

“We are paying attention to what they're doing and we don't like it,” Montour said. “If you think we can't do anything about it, you're badly mistaken.”

The Six Nations residents encouraged the city to work with the Six Nations confederacy council so “we can formulate a plan together,” Elliott said.

The two bodies also have similar interests in the contaminated land at the John C. Munro Hamilton International airport, Elliott said. He suggested working together on a unified approach in both matters.

Enbridge appeared before the committee to defend its plan to carry heavy crude oil through the pipeline. The company has learned a lot since more than 20,000 barrels of oil spilled into Michigan's Kalamazoo River in 2010, said Enbridge spokesperson Graham White. It has also learned from when Line 10 ruptured in a Binbrook soybean field in 2001.

“We've come a long way as a company in terms of our emergency response and our capacity and our speed of response,” White said after the presentation.

Intimidation ... eh? It's been going on for years, the new normal in the Grand Valley.
