Ottawa residents came out Tuesday to hear about the threats that would be posed to waterways by the 1.1 million barrel-per-day Energy East Pipeline.

The Council of Canadians and Ecology Ottawa co-hosted an evening town hall at the Ottawa Public Library to explore the impact Energy East tar sands pipeline may have on water, particularly the impact a spill would have on the Rideau, Mississippi and Ottawa rivers.
