Northern Gateway pipeline hearings

2012-02-22

Queen’s University School of Policy Studies professor Warren Mabee is available to discuss the Northern Gateway pipeline hearings that start today. More than 4,000 people have signed up to address the review panel, which begins today in Kitimat, B.C., and will take about two years to complete.

Dr. Mabee says hearings for the proposed pipeline – which would send oil from just north of Edmonton to the B.C coast for shipment to Asian markets – should be long and thorough.

“For a country that is dependent upon international markets, a transparent and fair hearing process is essential,” says Dr. Mabee.

Dr. Mabee, who is the director of the Queen’s University Institute for Energy and Environmental Policy, has authored numerous studies examining policy for renewable energy options, and has provided expert advice to both federal and provincial governments on the development of strategies to reduce our reliance upon fossil energy sources.

Please note Dr. Mabee is available after noon on Tuesday, Jan. 10.
