Tell Your MP To Support Energy East

A friendly reminder to get members / office staff / neighbours, etc. to e-mail their MP in regards to Energy East. Let’s hit them with as many people as possible from all over the province.

The link below is easy and takes less than 2 minutes to complete.

The Energy East pipeline project is in danger of being cancelled. 

Energy East is a nation-building infrastructure project. It will create jobs and prosperity for middle-class Canadians. It will also get our energy resources to people around the world who in a recent survey, said if they had a choice, would pick oil and natural gas developed the Canadian way.

But the National Energy Board (NEB) has imposed another review on this critical pipeline project in what seems to be a never-ending regulatory process that threatens to keep Canadian energy infrastructure projects in eternal limbo.

We need to act NOW – send your MP a letter and tell them this project is good for Canada.

We only have 30 days to get our decision-makers to let the NEB know we don’t need another review and more delays.  That’s the length of time requested by TransCanada as it makes a decision on the future of Energy East.

As Energy Citizens, let’s stand up for jobs, billions of dollars for the Canadian economy, and oil and gas developed the Canadian way.

Please take two minutes to send a letter in support of the Energy East project.

Thank you.
Canada’s Energy Citizens
