Energy Institute Comes Under Fire For Ties To Tories

The only First Nations member of the provincial Energy Institute has resigned....and the institute itself is coming under fire for its supposed lack of impartiality. 

Liberal Leader Brian Gallant tells CHSJ News the Energy Institute's close ties with the Alward government are stifling an open dialogue about the energy future of the province.

When he tendered its resignation Metallic said the institute was too concerned with what the Tory government wanted it to say about shale gas development.
