Don’t miss Saturday screening of “Above All Else”!

Stop Energy East (North Bay) is proud to sponsor the amazing documentary Above All Else on Saturday, November 15th at 4 pm at the Capitol Centre.

A feature presentation of the Doc North Film Festival, Above All Else is a powerful testimony to the people of east Texas who stood up to TransCanada and an urgent call to action on TransCanada’s Energy East Project. The screening will be followed by a discussion of the film and how the experience of the landowners along the Keystone XL holds important lessons for those who live along and are concerned about TransCanada’s proposal to convert their mainline natural gas line through Nipissing District – and the Trout Lake watershed – to make it a carrier for crude oil and diluted bitumen from Alberta’s tar sands.

Three myths about the Energy East pipeline – Globe and Mail

Thanks to Maude Barlow for clearly setting out three common myths about #Energy East:
Myth #1: Energy East would displace Eastern Canadian dependence on "foreign crude" imports;
Myth #2: Energy East would generate good long-term jobs; and
Myth #3: Energy East would slow dangerous oil by rail traffic

OEB Update on Part Two of Energy East Consultation and Review

The Ontario Energy released an update today, following #TransCanada’s filing of their #EnergyEast application last week. The OEBs technical advisors will take approximately 6-8 weeks to assess TransCanadas application. The OEB will then hold a series of Community, First Nations and Metis meetings, starting in January 2015, and will also host a forum at which stakeholder organizations will have the opportunity to make brief presentations that address the impacts of the proposed pipeline from a province-wide perspective.

The OEB will provide a further update in several weeks with a schedule of the meetings and the stakeholder forum, including dates/times/locations.
