New Brunswick's premier is reaffirming his support for the Energy East pipeline in the wake of concerns being raised by Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard. Couillard told The Associated Press on Tuesday he doesn't see much economic benefit for Quebec if his province is simply a "transit place" for oilsands crude making its way to the East Coast. But New Brunswick Premier Brian Gallant says the project will help the country and needs to proceed. (Gallant says the shipping crude by pipeline is safer than sending it by rail. He said he plans to discuss the pipeline with Couillard and other premiers at the upcoming meeting of the Council of the Federation.)
