One local group does not want an oil pipeline running through the Ottawa area.
Ecology Ottawa says they'll be holding a public information session at 7 PM Thursday, at Kitchissippi United Church on Island Park Drive, to discuss how to stop the project.
In a press release, Ecology Ottawa says they are "concerned about all of the residents and communities along the pipeline. whose health, environment, and water are put at risk."
The pipeline, dubbed Energy East and to be managed by TransCanada, would convert a natural gas pipeline from Alberta to Cornwall to carry oil sands bitumen. Another 1400 kilometers of pipelines would be built to take that oil to the east coast for export.
