Today is the final day the National Energy Board (NEB) is receiving applications to participate in TransCanada’s Energy East pipeline project review. As I write this, close to 1700 applications have been submitted. From impacted landowners, farmers, First Nations and Indigenous organizations, to municipalities and provincial governments along the route, special interest groups, NGOs, and more.
The Council of Canadians has been heavily mobilizing on a number of levels around the NEB.
Let me first affirm, the NEB review is a broken process.
