On the eve of a Council of Canadians speaking tour in New Brunswick in opposition to the Energy East pipeline, that province's premier visited Alberta for four days to promote the controversial pipeline project and has even gone as far as suggesting two export pipelines - one for oil, one for gas - should be built.

On Monday, New Brunswick premier Brian Gallant met with Alberta premier Jim Prentice and on Tuesday he met with top executives at TransCanada, the company behind both the Energy East pipeline and the Keystone XL pipeline to the United States. He is now back in New Brunswick.
