City Council and Energy East

May 30th, 2017

Good Day Brothers & Sister,

City councils resolution to oppose Energy East was defeated at last nights City Council meeting. This was replaced by a conditional resolution to support the project tabled by Councillor Angus. The fact based depositions presented to council helped sway at least one councillor to vote in favour of, not only a safer way to transport this commodity but what could turn out to be an excellent employment opportunity in the future.

To those who turned out to the meeting on that dreary Monday, I thank you. To those that did not I would stress that the debate is not over. Opposition is firmly entrenched and if opportunity presents itself they will surely make their voices heard. We must counter their views with an educated response so we can keep this project moving forward.


Pat Dool, Business Manager
