All new NEB Panel members for Energy East must be far above any appearance of bias and must be seen to be impartial. It is critical that each and every member be at arm's length of any government that is actively lobbying for this project.
In their News Release on January 9, 2017, the National Energy Board announced their selection of the three-member Energy East Hearing Panel to review this proposed tar sands pipeline project. The Panel will be Don Ferguson, Carole Malo, and Marc Paquin.
