As society begins to seriously grapple with the global threat of climate change, pipeline proposals like Keystone XL, Northern Gateway and Energy East have faced unprecedented levels of opposition.

Adam Scott from Environmental Defence will explain why citizens are saying no to oil sands pipelines across North America. Canada's transition away from an economy based on fossil fuels to a modern one based on clean energy will bring large and lasting economic benefits for Canadians.

The program takes place at Toronto Reference Library on September 30 in the Beeton Auditorium.
