The Council of Canadians Fredericton chapter marched against the proposed Energy East pipeline yesterday afternoon.
Global News reports, "Opposition to the proposed Energy East Pipeline has taken to the streets once again in New Brunswick. A 'Hands Across the Water' event was held Saturday in Fredericton. Organized by the Fredericton chapter of the Council of Canadians, about 100 people marched to the Nashwaak River on the city’s north side."
That news article quotes two chapter activists: Lynaya Astephen (who is with the Saint John chapter) says, “It goes through about 300 waterways in New Brunswick alone and about 800 or so in Quebec. A group of us from New Brunswick actually were in Quebec last week to bring awareness to the pipeline.” And Mark D'Arcy (with the Fredericton chapter) notes, “TransCanada and the governments have not been forthcoming with public meetings. Without proper maps. Without provincial environmental impact assessments."
