Economic Assessment of Northern Gateway

04 February 2012


As part of the National Energy Board’s Joint Review Panel process of whether or not Northern Gateway is in the Public Interest, Intervenors are able to submit evidence as to the consequence of the project. In an effort to shed light on the economic consequences of this project as it affects Canadians and Canada, I prepared this report. I had applied for and was anticipating that I would be granted Late Intervenor Status. When that status was not forthcoming I approached the Alberta Federation of Labour and asked them to consider this document as part of their evidence. The evidence was filed as part of the AFL’s evidence on Tuesday January 31, 2012.

The AFL full submission is available here. There is some excellent material regarding the consequence of the project and what we need to do before contemplating Northern Gateway or any other pipelines to the west coast or the US.
