  Canada is Stronger with the Energy East Pipeline

We are approaching an important time in our efforts to build the Energy East Pipeline.

Therefore, we are mobilizing as an organization to defend our work, our industry, our partners and our employees that provide an essential service to address our country's energy needs in a safe and efficient manner. That's why we've created a new website of our education and advocacy campaign for Energy East: The new site will allow us to identify, target and build advocates to help get the facts out about Energy East.

On this website you can show your support for Energy East by signing our pledge and sharing your reasons to want to see Energy East in service on time. By joining the Energy East Action Network, you and your teams can take a stand and show your support for a project that will create energy independence, a healthy economy and progress for all Canadians.

To learn more, you can visit, or email us at

Can I ask that you please circulate this to all your pipeline supporters to have them sign up in support of the project and to receive information about other ways they can get involved.

Union Rights Are Human Rights

  The Broadbent Institute is challenging the resurrection of Bill C-377 in the Senate.

This private member’s bill, which has the full backing of the Conservative government, is an attack on organized labour and should never become law.
