The decision to cancel the Energy East Pipeline was not met with a lot of enthusiasm here in the southeast.
Jeff Yanko, Public Affairs Adviser, with Tundra Energy Marketing Limited (TEML) in Estevan shares his disappointment to the news.
"Tundra Energy Marketing appreciates the efforts made by TransCanada and is disappointed in the decision to not move forward with the Energy East project."
Along with other businesses, he saw the benefits to the pipeline.
"TEML really believes that this pipeline project would have provided more access to additional markets across North America for all our local oil producers."
The pipeline was a way to transport crude oil from Saskatchewan and Alberta to Eastern Canada. The pipeline was to move approximately 1.1 billion barrels of crude oil a day. Options now include using trucks and the railway.
