Protests halt Energy East Montreal hearing

Canada’s National Energy Board canceled a hearing in Montreal over the proposed Energy East Pipeline on Aug. 29 when protestors disrupted the meeting (OGJ Online, July 15, 2016).

One protestor charged the head table and was arrested, along with two others.

TransCanada proposes the 4,500-km system, involving conversion and construction, to carry 1.1 million b/d of crude from Alberta and Saskatchewan to refineries and terminals in eastern Canada.

The project faces opposition from politicians, environmentalists, and aboriginal groups.
