Opposition Mounting To Proposed Pipeline, Say Groups

It's not an official proposal yet, but according to the Ecology Action Center, opposition to TransCanada's proposed Energy East pipeline is mounting across the country. 

Catherine Abreu says the promise of 1,000 jobs created during the flow phase isn't enough to sell the idea to Canadians, and there's been a huge response to petitions circulated by various organizations--40,000 signatures, to be exact.

Abreu points out fisheries jobs are being put at risk by the proposed pipeline....and in Ontario, the provincial government is calling for province-wide consultations, including a review of climate impacts from Energy East.
