Prime Minister Harper says pipelines are safe, will improve energy security

The Prime Minister says it’s important for Canadians to benefit from the nations energy products, and pipelines are the safest way to get it to market.

Friday in Quebec, Stephen Harper said pipelines such as TransCanada’s proposed Energy East will improve the nations energy security.

Thursday, TransCanada announced it plans to connect Alberta’s oilsands to the Irving Refinery in New Brunswick at a cost of $12-billion.

Harper’s calling it a good idea in principal as it’s still subject to an independent review.
