Opposition is mounting as TransCanada is on the verge of drilling boreholes on the floor of the Bay of Fundy for its proposed Energy East export terminal in Saint John.
Today the Grassy Narrows First Nation declared a state of emergency over unsafe drinking water conditions in the community. The community has started delivering bottled water door to door to ensure that their families, many of which have already been impacted by mercury poisoning, have safe drinking water.
OTTAWA – The Energy East terminal project in the Bay of Fundy has not been approved, but that isn’t stopping TransCanada from moving ahead with disruptive borehole testing as early as today. Borehole drilling creates marine noise and can result in flaring, both of which are detrimental to whales and other wildlife in the surrounding land and waters.
