Speaking to the media during the annual conference of New England Governors and Eastern Canadian Premiers, Gov. John Baldacci (D-Maine) criticized the decision by the Canadian federal government to prohibit LNG vessels from transiting Canada’s internal waters in the Head Harbour Passage. According to the Telegraph-Journal, Governor Baldacci encouraged the federal Canadian government to allow the FERC regulatory process to move forward before making a final determination on vessel traffic. Premier Shawn Graham of New Brunswick noted that his government is not against the construction of properly sited LNG facilities, but emphasized that the Downeast LNG project “could have a negative impact on [the New Brunswick] economy and on security issues on this side of the border.”
