Why Should We Care About Energy East?

Ontario residents would be wise to find out how the Energy East Pipeline is going to affect us. If we want any changes made, now is the time to make our suggestions, before the pipeline is approved.

The Ontario Energy Board will be holding public consultations in March and April to assess Ontario's position, and will present their conclusions to the National Energy Board, who ultimately must give their approval for the pipeline to proceed.
