Energy East Pipeline

TransCanada PipeLines Limited’s proposed Energy East Pipeline

Environment North is participating in the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) consultation process which provides a forum for Ontarians to express their views on the proposed Energy East Pipeline.  

Environment North has three main concerns with the project:

1. The construction of a pipeline facilitates expansion of Canada’s oil production and invests in new fossil fuel infrastructure. These are both incompatible with Canada’s responsibility to reduce greenhouse gas emissions

2. The risk of a spill in the Great Lakes watershed.

3. The benefits do not outweigh the consequences, especially for Ontario.
