The Energy East Pipeline is good policy. It’s needed to transport oil from Western Canadian provinces to the refinery in New Brunswick.
This 12 billion dollar infrastructure project would increase pipeline and refining work and provide well paying jobs throughout our region. It would also make us less dependent on foreign oil.
Pipelines are the best way to transport oil across Canada and are safer than shipping oil by rail. Crossing six provinces, Energy East is a national project that benefits Canadian workers. Energy East offers significant opportunity for Atlantic Canadian workers and well paying jobs, right here at home.
