Interview: Pipe Dreams: Behind the scenes of Canada’s energy wars

October 4, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm


Join National Observer‘s Mike De Souza for an exclusive live interview with Jacques Poitras, author of Pipe Dreams, an in-depth investigation into the Energy East pipeline saga. Gain exclusive insight and a behind the scenes look at recent reporting by the journalists who covered the rise and fall of Energy East and the broader battle of climate and energy in Canada. Bring your questions and get ready to mix and mingle with journalists and special guests at a reception afterward.

Poitras is an award-winning investigative journalist who has been the provincial affairs reporter for CBC News in New Brunswick since 2000. He is the author of several books, including Irving vs. Irving, shortlisted for the National Business Book Award and winner of the Independent Booksellers’ Choice Award for 2015.

De Souza is also an award-winning investigative journalist. His reporting on Energy East revealed conflict of interest allegations that brought federal hearings to a standstill, while his more recent reporting about allegations of a rigged process for the Trans Mountain expansion project has been cited both at the Federal Court of Appeal and the House of Commons.
