Occupation at Westover Site Continues

Protestors have blockaded Enbridge construction since Thursday

by shailagh keaney

Now into its third day, the occupation at Enbridge's North Westover Pump Station in the Beverly Swamp (Haudenosaunee territory) continues. Enbridge has been upgrading the pump station in advance of the National Energy Board's hearing on the Line 9 pipeline reversal project this coming fall.

Last night, Enbridge sent a senior Public Relations representative and an Aboriginal Liason from Alberta to the site.

Demonstrators set up camp during the early morning of June 20th, and have disrupted Enbridge's construction since then.

Demonstrators are inviting visitors, messages of support and donations. More information can be found at
