For a second day, National Energy Board hearings on the Energy East pipeline project have been postponed in Montreal.
The decision follows what the NEB calls a “violent disruption” at the start of the hearing Monday as protestors stormed into the meeting.
Several people were arrested and are facing obstruction charges.
The hearings were set for all week in Montreal before moving on to Quebec City the week of October 3rd.
Many environmentalists, First Nations groups and some provincial politicians have been very vocal about their opposition to the Energy East pipeline, which would take crude from Alberta to New Brusnwick,
