Energy East Pipeline

The Issue

TransCanada’s Energy East Pipeline would have crossed  many Canadian rivers, including our own Ottawa River, with no details as to how to make that crossing safely. In October 2017, TransCanada said it would not move forward with the proposal.

How did we help?

Ottawa Riverkeeper has been working on the Energy East file since 2014. In June 2017, we supported a report released by Environmental Defence and Equiterre stating that the application was incomplete.
