The proposed Energy East pipeline dominated a closed-door discussion between the premiers of Saskatchewan and New Brunswick today in Saint John.
Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall is there to address an energy conference as part of a swing through Eastern Canada to promote the proposed 15.7-billion-dollar project.
Premier Brian Gallant says the pipeline can stimulate the economy and create jobs.
Wall heads to Montreal tomorrow for a meeting with Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard.
Energy East has run into stiff opposition in Quebec, where politicians, citizens and environmentalists question whether the ecological risks outweigh the economic rewards.
