The Dawn Gateway pipeline project was earlier the subject of a constitutional decision by the Ontario Energy Board. Originally, the pipeline was proposed as a federally-regulated project. The National Energy Board dismissed concerns expressed by affected landowners that the project was not federal and that, if it proceeded as a federal project, landowners would be negatively affected. However, the Ontario Energy Board ruled that the project would be provincial and accepted that some of the concerns of the landowners were valid.
