Economics behind Mackenzie Valley Pipeline being called into question

The Alternatives North Coalition, a social justice coalition operating in the Northwest Territories (http://www.alternativesnorth.ca/), has written to the National Energy Board to request that it revisit the issue of the economic justification for the proposed Mackenzie Valley pipeline. The proponents of the project filed a market evaluation with the NEB in 2004. ANC questions whether the 2004 figures are still reliable given drops in demand for gas and other considerations.
