Pipeline still lacks safeguards, Coderre says

Speaking as president of the Montreal Metropolitan Community, Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre declared Friday he is not convinced Enbridge's 9B pipeline project is safe for the region's water supply or that Enbridge's emergency plan is adequate in the event of an oil spill. The project involves reversing the flow direction of Enbridge's existing 9B pipeline from westward to eastward from its North Westover station near Hamilton, Ont., to Montreal and also increasing the capacity of the pipeline to 300,000 barrels per day.
