The Enbridge Line 10 pipeline near Hamilton was sabotaged earlier this month. Hamilton Police found several holes drilled into sections of the pipe, putting a stop to construction.
But this isn't a new pipeline. Enbridge is replacing just a 35 km section to make it more modern and safer.
The vandalism comes after an anonymous article on an anarchist website gave tips on how best to damage the pipeline.
These guys think they are “saving the environment” by drilling holes into brand new pipelines — which could cause the oil to leak into the ground.
The article, completely without awareness and irony, advises bringing cutting oil to help the sabotage process along, to keep the drill tip cool and effective.
See? Environmentalists need oil too, even to commit their sabotage.
