More Pipeline Talks

The Council of Canadians are holding public consultations throughout the province on the proposed Energy East Pipeline.  Council Chair Maude Barlow spoke at last night's meeting at the Lakehead Labour Centre and had some choice words for the Harper Government.  Barlow says that most of the oil being transported will be exported, and that it won't have a direct benefit to Canadians.  Public consultations will be held across Ontario, ending in Cornwall April 16th.
