Stung by criticism in Quebec of the proposed Energy East pipeline, Alberta municipalities are hailing the project's promise of jobs and economic growth. The Alberta Urban Municipalities Association has written a letter to its sister organizations across Canada seeking their support for Energy East. Association president Lisa Holmes says Energy East would help the province and the country. (The letter cites estimates by the Conference Board of Canada that this project will support over 14-thousand jobs annually during a nine-year development and construction stage. It also notes it would provide 10 billion dollars in tax revenues to the provinces.)
