Energy East pipeline poses climate challenge for premiers

New report shows how success of multi-province energy strategy depends on addressing oilsands expansion plans, including west-to-east pipeline

QUEBEC CITY — As Canada’s premiers meet in Quebec City to discuss climate change, a new report from the Pembina Institute outlines key considerations and challenges for provincial discussions of a Canadian Energy Strategy.
