We need to stop investing in oil infrastructure, stop subsidizing oil companies, and start subsidizing renewable energy solutions. Canada risks falling behind economically and environmentally to continue down the path of oil. Just because we have the oil & can extract it doesn't mean we should. Now is the time to switch directions. We need local, clean solutions to energy production that don't require widespread destruction of the landscape and ecosystems. Canada's Amazon is the boreal forest, our Giant Panda is boreal caribou -- we are smart enough, progressive enough, to find solutions to have our energy, our boreal forest and caribou too.

We need Energy East YESTERDAY. Lets stop being so idiotic while Saudi Arabia profits at our expense. This is brain dead. Build it NOW. Put people to work and keep all the money in Canada. You're welcome.

The NEB has no public trust. I agree with the comments made to you by Marc Eliesen. We need a board the looks out for Canada and it's future and not building strand assets for sunset industries. I'm lucky since I can retire and fight these unscientific decisions (kinder morgan LNG) that you have made.

The NEB should have put out a survey and created multiple methods of engagement. This aside, the NEB should have a legal duty to consult First Nations.

Laara Mixon, M.A. almost 2 years ago

The NEB has never been suited to what we know today as "environmental assessment" and any further involvement in this area should be removed from it's mandate and left with the environmental assessment process in the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change. The NEB mandate should be limited to economic, technical and energy security matters.

1. The current incarnation of the Pan-Canadian Strategy for Clean Growth and Climate Change won't be enough to meet Canada's goal of reducing emissions to 30% below 2005 levels by 2030 (1). Furthermore, our current goal is still woefully inadequate (2) to the challenge posed by climate change. If every country adopted Canada’s targets, this would not keep warming below 2oC, let alone the 1.5oC nations promised to pursue in Paris (3). In short, we are off to a great start but we must do better. Thus, all National Energy Board reviews must address Canada’s climate change targets, timeframes, and other international obligations. Science-based GHG targets and doing our fair share to reduce emissions must be part of the consideration for approval of any new fossil fuel infrastructure.

2. No public dollars should go into new fossil fuel infrastructure. The business case for investment in fossil fuel infrastructure is falling apart and is financially risky. In January 2017, former US President Obama published a paper in Science that the trend to clean energy is irreversible (4). This analysis is backed by a number of agencies, including the World Economic Forum (WEF) (5), Policy Horizons Canada (6), Deutsch Bank (7), and the International Renewable Energy Agency (8). In a 2016 paper, Policy Horizons Canada (6) – a government foresight and knowledge organization – predicts “significant disruptions in energy over the next 10-15 years,” so much so that it advises against public investment in the fossil fuel sector. The Independent reported that a record number of UK-based oil and gas companies became insolvent in 2016. Thierry Lepercq, the head of research at France’s Engie, the world’s largest private power production company, warns “that the growth in renewable energy could push the cost of oil down to as low as $10 in less than ten years.” (9)

- decriminalize Hemp and establish a national board, like the wheat board, to buy process and sell hemp to manufacturers
HEMP WILL REPLACE PETROLEUM AND ALL OIL BASED PRODUCTS
- turbines inside the municipal water pipes
- feces from waste water can have the water extracted to create a coal-like combustible
- the wind sheer on the sides of skyscrapers can be captured by bladeless wind turbines
- discounts on land taxes for properties with solar cells/ Tesla solar roofs
-discounts on land tax when a portion of the property is devoted to organic urban farming
- blue tone street lights with solar cells + motion sensors
- solar cell walkways
- indoor walkways collect static/kinetic energy from pedestrian movement
-wave/tidal booms to use kinetic movement to collect energy
- wind powered trains
-Blest technology which turns plastic back into oil needs to be fully integrated into for-profit recycling programs especially on the coasts

- REQUIRE ENERGY/OIL/GAS COMPANIES TO PAY A PORTION OF THEIR YEARLY REVENUE TO CARBON TAX WITHOUT PERMITTING THEM TO PASS THOSE COSTS ONTO CONSUMERS!

Can you clarify to what address I would ultimately send any written submission to the panel?
I know that submissions must be sent in by the end of March.

NEB should do more to ensure that Oil Companies have the means & incentives to reclaim abandoned Oil sites & facilities. Time tables should be adopted. Also better monitoring of all pipelines in use is a must. Advocating small renewable energy programs [ie. wind, solar & biomass facilities] should be a priority
