On Wednesday at 2 pm, Toronto City Council will vote on a motion which would tell Enbridge Gas to install shut off valves wherever Line 9 crosses rivers in Toronto. If this vote fails, Toronto's drinking water will be at risk, especially if the Federal Government allows Line 9 to carry tar sands oil. You can help make sure it doesn't fail.
