Industry insiders claim that the Energy East Pipeline will create tens of thousands of jobs across Canada and add tens of billions of dollars to GDP.

The report also explains how Manitoba's ability to develop and expand renewable energy sources offers more potential to create decent jobs and a more sustainable economy.
