Council of Canadians Celebrates End of Energy East Pipeline
The Council of Canadians is celebrating the cancellation of the Energy East pipeline project and is available for comment.
“The end of Energy East shows that extreme energy projects are part of our past not our future,” says Maude Barlow, Honorary Chairperson with the Council of Canadians. “For all of our sakes, Kinder Morgan, Line 3, Line 10 and Keystone XL must face the same fate.”
The Council has been organizing to stop Energy East since the first day it was announced. The opposition of communities and organizations has played a decisive role in halting the controversial project.
