Energy East – Our Risk, Their Reward March 17, 2016

Free Town Hall Co-Sponsored by Boreal Action

TransCanada’s Energy East project would convert an existing natural gas pipeline – parts of which are up to 40-years old – to ship 1.1 million barrels of oil every day through the Prairies to export port in New Brunswick. Join us for a follow up discussion about why TransCanada’s proposed Energy East pipeline is all risk and little reward.
