Saskatchewan's municipal leaders have voted to send a letter to the federal transport minister regarding TransCanada's Energy East pipeline project.

We’ve now spent the better part of a decade not building pipelines to transport that buried treasure (Western oil) to global markets. It's about time we as a country tap into that buried treasure.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says it’s not his job to be a “cheerleader” for Energy East or other oil pipelines. But it is his job to ensure Canadians can get their products to market.

Justin Trudeau’s government extends the reviews of two major proposed pipeline projects by several months and will appoint new members to the National Energy Board to restore public trust in federal oversight of industry.

A technical briefing is being scheduled for news media as the Liberal government poises to announce new rules today for assessing major resource projects such as oil pipelines.

New Brunswick Premier Brian Gallant will deliver his annual state of the province speech this week, but the outlook for the provincial economy is not overly promising, with a number of major resource projects in question.
