MONTREAL, May 17, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - The Association Industrielle de l'Est de Montréal (AIEM), with a focus on sustainable development, is in favor of an expansion of crude oil supply options for Montreal-East, including sources from Western Canada. It therefore supports the project to Re-reverse the flow of line 9 from Sarnia to Montreal.
Adhering to principles of responsible and sustainable development, the AIEM believes that this project strikes an adequate balance between environmental, economic and social requirements. The AIEM believes, this new source of oil supply would stimulate the vitality of the petroleum and petrochemical industries in Montreal, have no significant additional environmental impacts at the local level and would benefit the whole community of Montreal-East.
Established in 1960, with an emphasis on protecting the environment, the AIEM now focusses on the harmonization of industrial activities with its urban environment. Its mandate is to offer members a forum for concerted actions, as well as services and advice tailored to their needs for continuous improvement in a continuously evolving urban setting. Its scope of action and priorities are directly related to: sustainable development, risk management of major industrial accidents and collaborations with public services as well as the local community.
