Senator Black is profoundly disappointed with the termination of the Energy East project
Senator Black expressed profound disappointment at the termination by TransCanada of the Energy East Pipeline and Eastern Mainline Projects. “This is a tremendous loss for Albertans and Canadians” said Senator Black. The Government must play an important role to ensure the realization of projects that are clearly in the national interest, and in this case the government simply sat in the back of the room. “While it is important to balance interests, if we don’t get any projects built, there will be no interests to balance.”
Senator Black was the founding president of the Energy Policy Institute of Canada (EPIC), the organization dedicated to the development of a Canadian energy framework. “We need a comprehensive energy strategy for how Canada is going to move forward.” Senator Black will be focusing his energy once again on this important area for Canada’s prosperity.
