First Nations in New Brunswick are gearing up for what could be one of Canada’s largest infrastructure projects.

The Energy East pipeline will bring tar sands bitumen from Alberta to a refinery in Saint John, NB.

Last week, TransCanada filed its paperwork to kick-start the regulatory process.

While the fate of the project now lies with the National Energy Board, Mi’kmaq and Maliseet leaders say their input is necessary.
