New Brunswick premier touts pipeline jobs

New Brunswick Premier David Alward has told Alberta's legislature the proposed Energy East pipeline to his province is not just about resources, it&'s also about creating thousands of jobs across Canada.

He urged premiers to work as one and push forward on the pipeline, which he once again compared to the national railway as a country-building project.

Both Alward and Alberta Premier Alison Redford are backing TransCanada’s $12-billion pipeline as critical to boosting the national economy and reducing Alberta’s backlog of crude. The 4,500-kilometre line from Alberta to the deepwater port at Saint John would give Canada access to non-U.S. customers and reduce Eastern Canada’s heavy reliance on higher-priced foreign oil. The proposal is in the preliminary stages. Both Ontario and Quebec want more information on the economic and environmental impacts. A TransCanada report estimates the line would create 10,000 jobs during construction and 1,000 permanent jobs.
