Yesterday morning, Lois Corbett, Executive Director of the Conservation Council of New Brunswick (CCNB) was a guest on CBC’s Information Morning with Harry Forestell. During the interview, Lois said the NEB suffers from a credibility gap that it needs to address.
“Credible science, and credible testimony presented transparently to the public, is a must,” Corbett said.
Corbett also faced the economic arguments squarely when asked.
“I would rather go for the long game of sustainable economic development than the short-term game for pipeline company’s profits,” she said.
“And, don’t forget when we grow our solar programs, our geothermal programs and start investing a renewable economy, they will get jobs for those trades people in the same way they are currently finding jobs building pieces of pipeline.”
