Mi'kmaq (MIG'-maw) communities in New Brunswick say they remain "deeply concerned" about the effect the proposed Energy East pipeline will have on their aboriginal and treaty rights. Chief George Ginnish, of the Eel Ground First Nation, says they are concerned about water crossings as well as traditional fisheries and species such as Atlantic salmon. (Ginnish made the comments on behalf of nine Mi'kmaq communities during National Energy Board hearings in Saint John, New Brunswick.)
