Tell the federal government to fix the broken pipeline review process
The federal system for reviewing major energy projects is in crisis. The recusal of Energy East panel members and suspension of the pipeline’s review process is the latest sign that the National Energy Board is broken.
The NEB is increasingly seen by Canadians as a rubber stamp with little regard for environmental risks, including climate pollution. Arbitrary review timelines are undermining indigenous rights while crucial evidence and the voices of Canadians are routinely shut out. NEB officials are tainted by conflict of interest allegations and ties to industry.
Additionally, in recent years many of Canada’s longstanding environmental laws were gutted. They need to be fixed before any pipeline review can move forward.
Canada’s federal government is reviewing Canada’s environmental laws and repairing the broken review process for energy projects. Tell the government that all pipelines, including TransCanada’s Energy East and Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain Expansion, need to go through a new, rigorous review that protects the environment, respects the rights of indigenous peoples and allows all Canadians to have a voice.
