The Council of Canadians Fredericton and Saint John chapters were at the Trudeau town hall meeting in Fredericton this morning.
The Canadian Press reports, "Trudeau was asked about Energy East from a man, who said he was with the Council of Canadians, at a town hall event in Fredericton, who wondered if public meetings will be held in affected communities, and whether detailed maps of the pipeline route would be provided."
That man was Fredericton chapter activist and Energy East-New Brunswick campaigner Mark D'Arcy.
The article continues, "Trudeau says his government inherited a 'high degree of mistrust' from the previous Conservative government that has left Canadians skeptical about consultations on pipelines and environmental protection."
