Ken Froese is an independent expert with more than 20 years experience in health and environmental risk assessment. In the report Environmental Health in Red Head: The Energy East Project Dr. Froese reviews TransCanada’s Human Health Risk Assessment, part of its Energy East project application to the National Energy Board, and reveals critical gaps in the company’s conclusions that may impact those living near the pipeline and proposed marine terminal in Red Head, New Brunswick. Amongst other things, Dr. Froese finds that the risks from benzene emissions may be understated, that worst-case scenarios were not accounted for, and that there was minimal discussion of the impact of odours from the proposed infrastructure. The report concludes with a number of important questions that can be raised with TransCanada, the National Energy Board (NEB) and the New Brunswick government about the project.
