Tar Sands in the Bay of Fundy - Energy East Information Tour
The Ecology Action Centre (EAC) is hosting a series of information sessions in coastal Nova Scotian communities along the Bay of Fundy to discuss risks of the Tar Sands Supertankers to the Bay of Fundy – proposed as part of the Energy East Pipeline project.
The EAC’s information sessions, (dates and locations listed below) are a chance to discuss details and risks of these Tar Sands Supertankers and the Energy East Pipeline. The sessions aim to hear feedback and concerns from coastal communities about the project, and begin to work together to stop Tar Sands Supertankers in the Bay of Fundy.
TransCanada’s Energy East pipeline and associated export terminal in Saint John, New Brunswick pose risks to more than 5000 fishing jobs, tourism and the entire Bay of Fundy due to associated marine terminal and increased tanker traffic in the Bay of Fundy and through the Gulf of Maine. Tanker traffic would increase by nearly 290 tankers per year, adding 330 million barrels of diluted bitumen to the annual tanker traffic in the area. This could impact coastal communities, fisheries, and much of Nova Scotia’s mainland coastline.
