Council of Canadians available for comment on Premier Wall’s Energy East spin tour

Energy East: Our Risk. Their Reward.Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall’s tour of Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick this week is a desperate attempt to save a failing project, says the Council of Canadians.

“Premier Wall is trying to spin Energy East as a boon for jobs and the economy, but the business case for the pipeline is falling apart,” says Daniel Cayley-Daoust, Energy and Climate Campaigner with the Council of Canadians, who is available for comment. “Wall is acting as an industry lobbyist for a pipeline that’s a huge economic liability for Saskatchewan and all of Canada, not to mention an environmental and public health disaster.”

The Council of Canadians advocates for a new plan that creates good, green jobs by investing in renewable energy, energy efficiency and other programs that will actively fight climate change.
