Two Public Town Halls are taking place in Arnprior and Pembroke, with a focus on the proposed Energy East Pipeline development, which if it moves ahead, will extend from Alberta, through Renfrew County, to Saint John New Brunswick.
The Town Halls are taking place at the Galilee Centre in Arnprior on Wednesday October 1 from 7–9pm, and at the Marguerite Centre in Pembroke on Thursday October 2 from 7–9pm.
The Town Halls provide opportunities for questions and answers, and will feature speakers Ole Hendrickson, Kathryn Lindsay and Duncan Noble on local energy and sustainability, environmental risks and benefits, and climate change. Sabrina Bowman, a special guest speaker from Environmental Defence, will speak on the proposed Energy East pipeline.
The town halls are being organized by the Bonnechere River Watershed Project, the Ottawa River Institute, the Valley Climate Circle and Environmental Defence. The town halls are open to the public and free of charge. Refreshments will be served. Pre-registration is requested by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
