Pipeline protesters turn focus to TransCanada’s Energy East

Environmentalists are turning their sites on TransCanada Corp.’s $12-billion Energy East project, with a new report  that argues the cross-country pipeline will contribute to soaring greenhouse gas emissions in the oil sands. In a report to be released Thursday, Calgary-based Pembina Institute urges the federal government to consider the pipeline’s effect on carbon emissions when the National Energy Board conducts its environmental assessment, expected later this year.

And listen to a Feb 5, 2014 interview on CBC’s As It Happens with Clair Demerse, Federal Policy Director of the Pembina Institute.
