Step by Step: How to apply to have a say on Energy East

Slogging through the National Energy Board’s process can feel about as thick and gooped-up as the bitumen that TransCanada is proposing to push through its Energy East pipeline. The Conservation Council has put together a Step by Step Guide for getting through the application process to have a say on the proposed Energy East oil pipeline.

New Brunswickers who will be affected by this project and those with specialized knowledge about how the oil pipeline could affect our lands, drinking water, rivers, the Bay of Fundy, Right Whale, public health and safety have a say in this process. However, you must apply and describe in fewer than 500 words how you will be directly affected or what specialized knowledge that you have in order for the National Energy Board to accept a letter from you or hear comments from you at a hearing in the future. More information here.

Join or host an application party! In Fredericton, the Conservation Council is hosting an application party on Monday, Feb. 16 at 6:00pm at Conserver House, 180 Saint John St. We’ll get together and fill out the application together. There will be pizza!

Watch/share our video on applying to be heard on Energy East.

The deadline to apply to participate is March 3, 2015. Apply to the NEB today!

If you have any questions, contact us. We can walk you through it.
