TransCanada won’t proceed with Energy East pipeline

TransCanada says it won’t proceed with its Energy East pipeline and Eastern Mainline proposals.

Russ Girling, the Calgary-based energy company’s CEO and president, said in a statement that National Energy Board and Quebec officials will be informed TransCanada won’t go forward with the applications.

The proposed Energy East project would have carried oil from Alberta and Saskatchewan to New Brunswick.

      When indians make their daily demands for money, remind them of the pipeline cancellation.

        It’s amazing how much money various bands have gotten in ‘donations’ from resource companies to stop them from blocking roads beside reserves.

            When we had big pieces of equipment showing up or mods getting shipped in only 1 or 2 people on site would know until a few hours before and they always shipped them in at night to avoid the road blockade.

          The same as the non Native professional protesters, yet nothing was done about all the foreign funding to them even by Harper. Furthermore, even under Harper the approval process was ridiculous allowing non citizens to make presentations along with no time limit, and that was under Harper. Trudeau has made that process even more outrageous, and again nothing about the massive flow of foreign money to these groups.

    I do local-yokel media interviews out here in this turnip patch (New Brunswick), as a regional development economist — and was something of a strong advocate for Energy East. Over the past two years I collected (clipping by hand) newspaper articles on this. I suspected over the past six months that the pipeline would not be built, and said so to the media. I felt that this was a certainty, over the past six weeks or so. It was comical watching Premier Brian Gallant (a Liberal clone of Justin Trudeau) doing media spin on this, keeping fake hopes alive.

    Having said all this, this Energy East failure hits me hard. I am emotionally bitter — at Quebec, at the big-moneyed environmental machine, at all the New Class opponents. They win; working people lose — an old, rather well-worn story in many parts of Canada

    Will the maritime provinces rely on Venezuelan oil?

    And of course the Liberals are reacting the only way they know how. With Lies!! Our little dictator’s minister in charge of economic destruction, states its just a business decision. And he repeated his commitment to having indians and environmental loons having input on future resource development.

    It just isn’t worth it to do business in Canada.

    I guess the anti-pipeline crowd is perfectly ok with their children working at retail, food service, and call center jobs for the rest of their lives.
