ORA has been granted Intervenor Status in the Energy East pipeline asset transfer and Eastern Mainline Project (Project). ORA also submitted comments in the National Energy Board’s (NEB’s) online survey. We write in response to Energy East Pipeline Ltd. and TransCanada Pipeline Limited’s (applicant) 6 July 2016 comment letter regarding the NEB’s review of the Project.
The purpose of the NEB hearings is to provide an opportunity for all concerns to be voiced and examined, so that ultimately an informed decision can be made. This cannot be accomplished if the scope of issues is limited.
