    TransCanada Pipelines Limited wants to pump over one million barrels per day of tar sands bitumen diluted with carcinogenic chemicals through a partially converted natural gas pipeline over 4600 kilometres of Canadian waterways, wilderness and communities. In this video, concerned people from Ottawa and surrounding communities say NO! to the pipeline at a consultative meeting organized by the Ontario Energy Board, under the auspices of Ontario's Minister of Energy.

        Camp Line 9 is a short documentary about a 16-day climate camp organized in opposition to the transportation of bitumen from the Alberta Tar Sands through pipelines across Ontario and Quebec. The camp took place in September 2014 in Saint-André-d'Argenteuil, Québec on a site directly above the pipeline.

          Drilling oil and gas from shale rock or tar sands is neither safe for the environment nor a long term energy plan. Left behind are polluted air and millions of chemical laden water above and below ground. The land and ground water supply are also denigrated. Most jobs are temporary while leaving behind injured workers and damaged roads. Time and money is wasted because research on renewable, low pollution products are put off. The speaker presents facts on these matters.

                    This is the second video subMedia.tv has produced about the struggle to stop a natural gas transport project called the Pacific Trails Pipeline or PTP. The Unis’tot’en, a clan of the Wet’suet’en Nation have built a protection camp to bock PTP, in so called British Columbia in Canada. This is the third time the Unis’tot’en have called for a convergence in their territories. This year’s camp attracted over 150 people who came from as far east as Montreal and as far south as Florida. The camp organizers opted not to tap large environmental ngo’s for material support, and instead reached out to grassroots, community based allies. Out of the proposed pipeline projects that would cross through Unis’tot’en land, Pacific Trails is the first one slated to begin construction and poses and immediate threat. The PTP project is partnership between Apache Canada, Encana and EOG Resources formerly Enron Oil and Gas. The 463-kilometer PTP pipeline would connect a liquified natural gas port in the pacific ocean to the Spectra Energy Westcoast Pipeline in North East BC, with the aim of transporting gas extracted through fracking, to overseas markets. The much talked about Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline would transport tar sands oil from Fort McMurray, an extraction project that is devastating the nature and indigenous communities in the Athabasca region of Northern Alberta. The Enbridge pipeline would be built side by side to the PTP. These dirty energy schemes not only threaten nature and indigenous communities in the north. They also have global implications. If decisive action is not taken to stop the flows of oil and gas, the effects of global climate change could be catastrophic for people, plants and animals the world over. This is why Indigenous people and their allies traveled from far away to this camp. Our next report will focus on the student strike in Quebec and how it evolved into a social movement.

                      The “Line 9″ and “Energy East” pipelines threaten to bring tar sands “crude” from Alberta for export through ports in the Atlantic. These pipelines will traverse through many Indigenous communities and natural areas, threatening not only the health of the land but the sovereignty of these territories and their peoples. We have teamed up with Indigenous organizer Amanda Lickers to produce a Kahsatstenhsera: Indigenous Resistance to Tar Sands Pipelines. This video will focuses on Indigenous resistance and seeks to build capacity in Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities by providing an educational and accessible resource to build awareness across communities. Featuring stories and perspectives from land defenders in Athabasca Chipewyan, Aamjiwnaang, Six Nations of the Grand River, Kanehsatà:ke, and Elsipogtog First Nations, this video will not only educates the public on the issues being faced by pipeline construction and expansion, but showcases Indigenous resistance and provide an anti-colonial lens for understanding environmental destruction.
