Today's National Energy Board hearings on the Energy East pipeline in Montreal were cancelled before they began, after a group of chanting protesters took over the room.
Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre was set to testify first at this week’s hotly contested hearings for TransCanada’s proposed Energy East pipeline.
