During the federal election campaign, the Liberal party promised to revise the review process for energy projects such as Energy East, to make sure that there was always an adequate environmental review as part of the process, among other things. They have just announced that they are allowing the review of two projects to proceed under the old system: Trans-Mountain and Energy East.
The Thunder Bay Council of Canadians is participating in a protest against this, called the People’s Injunction. This protest has been organized across the country by 350.org.
Meet us at: 1:00 PM Friday January 15th 705 Red River Road (MP Patty Hajdu’s office) to let the Liberal government know that leaving the National Energy Board’s review process unchallenged and unchanged is not acceptable. We hope to see you there!
