The Council of Canadians has requested a two week extension from the National Energy Board to their March 3rd deadline for submitting applications for the review process on the Energy East pipeline. We've requested this extension because, as Council of Canadians energy and climate justice campaigner Andrea Harden-Donahue explains, "A number of concerns with the NEB website have been brought to our attention that have led to people trying to apply, not being able to do so."

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.
