TransCanada Vastly Exaggerating Energy East’s Ability to Reduce Overseas Oil Imports

Environmental Defence

Toronto, ON - Environmental groups released new data today on Eastern Canadian oil imports, disproving TransCanada’s claim that its Energy East pipeline proposal is necessary to eliminate Canada’s heavy dependence on overseas oil.

In recent media reports and in public materials, TransCanada claims Eastern Canadian refineries import 86 per cent of their daily needs from more expensive overseas sources including Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Venezuela and Algeria.
