The Atlantic Energy East tour has been great so far! With so much success with the first leg last week in Nova Scotia and Saint John events including the TransCanada open house in that community, Maude, Matt Abbott (Fundy Baykeeper with the Conservation Council), Ben Gotschall (Nebraska rancher and anti-Keystone XL pipeline) and I are working hard on the road to keep up the momentum!
Monday we were all arrived in Fredericton by late afternoon and met with Chief Candace Paul and others from the St. Mary’s First Nation. They were particularly interested to hear Ben Gotschall’s perspective as a rancher and landowner in Nebraska, and his experience with the Cowboy and Indian Alliance. After our meeting they were headed to a Chief and Council meeting where the pipeline was on the agenda.
