City Council Decision

City Council on March 31, April 1 and 2, 2015, adopted the following:

 

1.  City Council request Enbridge to install automatic shut-off valves on either side of the City of Toronto's major watercourses.

 
2.   City Council request that the National Energy Board not allow Enbridge the Leave to Open on the grounds that Condition 16 of the National Energy Board's decision has not been fully met at water crossings along Line 9B and therefore the Greater Toronto Area's drinking water have been left at risk.
