Supporters, opponents clash as 'changed circumstances' stop Energy East pipeline

06 October 2017

"After careful review of changed circumstances, we will be informing the National Energy Board that we will no longer be proceeding with our Energy East and Eastern Mainline applications", Girling said, adding the company is also withdrawing the project from Quebec's environmental review process.

Canadian stocks may wobble Thursday after Transcanada walked away from its almost trans-continental pipeline.

"But there is no doubt that with the Energy East pipeline project we would have been able to do even more to grow the economy, strengthen education and improve health care in our province".

Irving Oil did not make anyone available for an interview, but the company president said in a release that this is a blow for the country, not just Saint John and New Brunswick. Among other demands, Quebec insisted that the project be subject to an environmental assessment and that TransCanada must guarantee an emergency plan in case of a spill, consult with communities including aboriginal groups along the route and ensure the project doesn't reduce the province's gas supply.

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley is "deeply disappointed" by TransCanada's decision to pull the plug on the proposed Energy East pipeline - a project that would have created jobs and benefits across the country.

The gulf's water temperatures are still in the mid 80s - well warm enough to promote tropical development, Norman said. I would say it is doubtful that the system becomes a hurricane due to dry air west of the path, and westerly shear.

"The emissions associated with new pipelines are inconsistent with our climate imperative and the threat to waterways, wildlife, and lands was enormous".

"We believed if TransCanada continued with the process, the project would be approved".

The B.C. government doesn't share her view, however, and is now part of a court challenge against Trans Mountain being heard this week.

"The abandonment of the Energy East project is a major victory for the municipal world", Coderre wrote.

In November 2015, the Alberta government announced its climate plan, which gained support from a wide range of environmentalists and the CEOs of Suncor, Canadian Natural Resource Ltd. (CNRL), Shell and Cenovus.

N's CEC allows amendment in party constitution
According to Nawaz Sharif's lawyer, Mohsin Ranjha, the court has been assured that Maryam Nawaz and her husband will appear in court during the next hearing.

The Calgary-based company (TSX:TRP) had announced last month that it was suspending its efforts to get regulatory approvals for the mega projects.

The project has opened deep rifts in political circles, with New Brunswick and Alberta premiers expressing disappointment Thursday and Quebec politicians like Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre celebrating its demise. In the summer of 2016, the National Energy Board's review of Energy East was compromised after it was revealed by the National Observer that former Quebec Premier Jean Charest met the chairman and two commissioners on the National Energy Board while working for TransCanada. Companies are not eager to invest in expensive tar sands projects unless the price of oil comes back up.

Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre said the TransCanada announcement was "a lovely victory" against a "botched" pipeline project.

"TransCanada made the decision to cancel Energy East - but make no mistake, the reasons for it fall at the feet of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the federal government", Wall said in the statement.

"This is not up to me to explain why the company took this decision".

Now share Instagram Stories to Facebook
To rope in more numbers for their Stories, Instagram will now offer its members to post Stories directly to Facebook. Well, this is also one of the reasons for Facebook to allow direct posting of Instagram Stories on Facebook Stories.

"This was an investor decision that resulted from the low global price of oil".
