Group Asks Compromised Board Members to Step Down from NEB Panel Reviewing Energy East

Ecojustice

National Energy Board (NEB) panel members must recuse themselves to ensure Energy East pipeline review is impartial, group says.

“The NEB is charged with conducting a fair and unbiased assessment process for TransCanada’s Energy East pipeline,” Charles Hatt, Ecojustice lawyer. “Canadians cannot trust in that mission when panel members hold closed-door meetings about Energy East with interested stakeholders, including with Jean Charest, a TransCanada consultant. The perception of bias here is real, and it is troubling.”
