"We are proud of the hard work and commitment to the Energy East project shown by our employees and TransCanada over the last four years", said Whitcomb.
"Under Prime Minister Trudeau, the Energy East and Northern Gateway pipelines have disappeared", reads a statement from his campaign.
"I could be at the grocery store, I could be at the coffee shop, and people would constantly stop or say to me "protect our drinking water".
The 4,500-kilometer (roughly 2,800 miles) Energy East pipeline was planned to run from Alberta and Saskatchewan to the refineries of Eastern Canada and a marine terminal in New Brunswick, carrying about 1.1 million barrels of crude oil a day.
"While we ultimately support getting off oil, oil is still necessary today", they said in a statement.
Energy East would have provided Canadian oil producers with access to buyers in India, one of the fastest-growing markets for petroleum, because shipping there is faster from Canada's Atlantic Coast than from its Pacific Coast, said Tim McMillan, chief executive officer of CAPP.
"Our government would have used the same process to evaluate the Energy East Pipeline project that saw the Trans Mountain expansion and Line 3 projects approved".
Irving Oil has worked together with TransCanada on this project since it was first announced in 2013.
President and CEO Russ Girling said Thursday morning in Calgary that the company will inform Canada's pipeline regulator, the National Energy Board (or NEB), and Quebec's Environment Department that "we will no longer be proceeding" with the projects.
Notley said although the decision was driven by a broad range of factors, it was an "unfortunate outcome for Canadians".
Energy East would have carried 1.1-million barrels of crude oil a day from Alberta to Saint John, New Brunswick.
The review process is over, but several legal challenges to the pipeline - including over whether the environmental review adequately considered climate impacts - have tied the project up in the courts.
Alberta Premier Rachel Notley said Thursday that now Energy East is dead, there is an even greater urgency in completing the Trans Mountain project to B.C.to diversify the industry's export markets beyond the United States.
Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre, who has opposed the pipeline on environmental grounds, said he was thrilled to see it abandoned.
TransCanada made the announcement Thursday.
He says the project was never properly explained to Quebecers.
It said it had to review an NEB panel's decision to allow consideration of greenhouse gas emissions caused by producing and processing the oil transported in the pipeline, an unprecedented expansion of the scope of the inquiry. "You can't just come in and say, 'OK, we're going to do this.' And you have to adapt your project to the realities of the local governments", adding that they would have to "adapt to the realities and the legislative context of individual provinces".
