Line 9: Grand River to HWY 407 & 403 (Oakville)
Why should we work towards a Great Lakes Commons and how ?
The Westover to Montreal line, but just from the Grand River (just south of Cambridge) to Oakville.

from the Environmental Defence link below:

Line 9 is an aging oil pipeline owned by Enbridge Inc. that runs through some of the most densely populated parts of Canada.

Right now, the 38-year-old pipeline carries conventional oil and runs across Ontario and Quebec. As part of a larger plan to export tar sands oil east through Canada and the U.S., Enbridge recently applied to reverse Line 9 and has asked for permission for the line to carry heavy crude, which could include tar sands oil. Once that tar sands oil reaches Montreal, it is expected that a second pipeline will be reversed to carry the oil south to Portland, Maine for export.

Enbridge’s Line 9 proposal carries many risks, but few rewards for communities along the pipeline’s route.
