That was the sentiment expressed by Sustainable North Grenville, (SNG), representative, Chris Weissflog, during a deputation to committee of the whole on Sept. 19.

“We’re here tonight regarding concerns over expressions of support for the proposed Energy East pipeline project,” said Weissflog. “Before going any further, for the sake of council and the public, I would like to present an overview of the events leading to today.”

Concerns first arose in June 2013, when residents heard Mayor David Gordon speak publicly about the project on CBC, he explained.
