VIDEO: NEB postpones Montreal hearings after protest and arrests

AJ Korkidakis

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.

Instead, protesters disrupted the hearings with calls for the review process to be suspended amid allegations of conflict. After a violent police intervention, today’s hearings were cancelled. They are expected to resume tomorrow.
