The federal regulator responsible for pipelines is seeking an outside company to monitor online chatter en masse and aggregate the data in an effort to detect security risks ahead of time.

TransCanada held an open house at the Galloway Museum in Edson on Tuesday, June 19. The company provided information on three proposed projects in the province.

Last week, Ottawa announced it was going to invest $4.5 billion to buy Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain oil pipeline, a deal which doesn’t include all the money needed to twin that pipeline.

After giving a speech at a Saint John Region Chamber of Commerce luncheon, the co-CEO of J.D Irving told reporters Tuesday that Energy East is an important project for New Brunswick and the nation as a whole.

“We said we would get the pipeline built and we are getting it built,” she said, flanked by her celebratory caucus at a Tuesday news conference overlooking the Alberta Legislature. “We said we would meet the deadline. We met the deadline.”

Indigenous people in BC continue to support the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline as the saga over the pipeline project unfolds.
