Energy East

TransCanada President and CEO Russ Girling announces the new Energy East Pipeline during a news conference in Calgary on August 1, 2013. TransCanada Corp says it will move ahead with the $12 billion project to ship Alberta crude to refiners on its east coast and beyond, scaling up the project as its U.S.-bound Keystone XL line stalls in Washington.

Lac Megantic

The small town of Lac-Mégantic was devastated last summer by a crash and explosion of a train carrying crude oil. The oil industry says pipelines like the proposed Energy East project are a safer way to move oil, but some in Lac-Mégantic say there is no safe way to move oil. (Photo: Sam Harnett)
