TransCanada’s Energy East pipeline plan is the largest tar sands pipeline ever proposed. It would ship tar sands oil 4,600 km across Canada, putting millions of Canadians and nearly 1,000 lakes, rivers and streams and huge lengths of coastline at risk from tar sands oil spills. This oil would not be used by Canadians, because 90 per cent of it is intended for export. Building Energy East would increase Canada’s global warming pollution equivalent to adding 7 million new cars to Canada’s roads and would enable the expansion of the Alberta tar sands, the fastest growing source of global warming pollution in Canada.
