Thompson Says Pipeline Hearing Should Be Held In Saint John

Many are pinning hopes on the construction of the Energy East pipeline but seem to forget the part where it doesn't actually have the green light yet.

TransCanada will be submitting a formal regulartory filing to the National Energy Board this summer.

David Thompson of the Provincial Conservation Council says many questions will be answered when the NEB hearings take place.

He says the project will have to go through these legal hearings where people will have to register as intervenors if they want to participate in the hearings.

Thompson tells CHSJ News the NEB hearings won't to take place before the fall or even next year.
