McKenna Talks Energy With UNB Class

Frank McKenna draws a crowd and an energy chat put on by UNB was no exception.

Participants in the Energy Fundamentals for Leaders course at Saint John College asking questions of the former premier about the shale gas industry, the Energy East pipeline and more.

McKenna tells CHSJ News the pipeline received unanimous support because the benefits can be seen in terms of jobs and the potential for the Refinery.

He thinks the fact that we have had tanker movement for over 40 years and a refinery made it a much easier sell for us.

McKenna says we don't need to reinvent the wheel when it comes to shale gas extraction since it's been happening for more than 40 years and we can learn from what other locations have done.
