Enbridge officials presented their arguments in favour of the company's oil pipeline project to a Quebec Parliamentary Commission yesterday. The proposal would mean reversing the flow of oil, bringing it from the west to Montreal, in the pipeline known as 9B.
While the project is ultimately in the hands of the Federal Energy Board, the Quebec government wanted to hear from different experts, environmental groups and citizens.
Eric Prud'homme, manager of public affairs for Enbridge in Eastern Canada was in our studios to explain what the company presented to the parliamentary commission.
Four different Quebec ministers also spoke in front of the National Assembly. Our National Assembly reporter Shawn Lyons told us what message that barrage of ministers was there to deliver.
