New Brunswick’s “energy pathways”

According to US Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, the Canada-US border is about to become “a real border” (Obama’s message: Glory days of open border are gone, 26 March). Except, of course, when it comes to projects like New Brunswick Premier Shawn Graham’s “energy pathways” that will take energy from the Maritime Provinces to “increase the security and reliability for the northeastern states” (Irving’s next frontier: electricity, 26 March).
