Representing over a dozen groups from across the province, as well as national and international group, members of the pipeline caucus come together around common concerns about the potential impacts of the proposed Energy East Pipeline.  

More specifically, the caucus is working towards advancing the following priorities:

  • Increasing public awareness & education around the Energy East Pipeline,
  • Sharing materials and educational resources among the involved groups,
  • Linking with national campaigns/actions around the Energy East Pipeline,
  • Linking with other groups involved more broadly with climate/energy/water issues, and
  • Networking
The NBEN brings environmental groups together to work on the Energy East Pipeline through its caucus approach.

EIA Needed to Build Bridges: Mount Carleton Park

Friday, 09 September 2016
by Linda Robertson
Attention All New Brunswickers!

There are two bridges being built in Mount Carleton Park.  One of the bridges ( Moose Brook Bridge) is being built in a major moose yard and through a significant wetland.  The other bridge ( Bathurst Lake Thoroughfare), which once was a footbridge, is being built through a wildlife habitat and stream. 

The Department of Environment have given an exemption to the Department of Tourism to build these two new bridges.  They do have a Watercourse Alteration Permit.

The Friends of Mount Carleton Park believe that a full EIA is required. We want the construction to stop and we want the Department of Environment to conduct a full EIA on this construction project.

We are asking everyone to call Minister Serge Rouselle at 453-2690 or send an email at:  serge.rousselle@gnb.ca to voice their concern and to call for an EIA on the 2 bridges construction sites.

Please see CBC article below regarding this issue.
