TransCanada filed a proposal with the National Energy Board today for approval on the controversial Energy East pipeline project.
Part of the 4,600km pipeline would pass just west of Stittsville, stretching from Alberta to the East Coast of Canada.
Among those 30,000 pages of documents is Appendix Volume 9E, which includes a “community engagement log” covering Ottawa. It’s a compilation of interactions between Trans Canada representatives and community officials.
Meanwhile, Ecology Ottawa was planning to place jack-o-lanterns around the Prime Minister’s office to protest the pipeline.
“TransCanada’s filing today represents the countdown to this pipeline being rejected. Already we’ve heard it from communities along the pipeline route, from First Nations, and from nearly 6,000 residents of Ottawa alone, who have said they don’t want this pipeline,” stated Ben Powless, Pipeline Community Organizer with Ecology Ottawa in a press release.
We want to hear from our readers what they think about the pipeline. Do you have any questions that you’d like answers to? Add your comments below or email firstname.lastname@example.org
