TransCanada Corp., the company seeking to build the Keystone XL pipeline, has teamed up with the world’s largest public relations firm to promote a proposed alternative pipeline that’s entirely in Canada.

Greenpeace Canada obtained documents that the U.S. public relations firm Edelman drafted for TransCanada that outline a campaign to promote Energy East, the company’s proposed 2,858-mile pipeline that would transport crude oil from the Alberta tar sands to the east coast of Canada. The company filed an application to build the Energy East pipeline last month — a project that has been described as an “oil route around Obama” amid political wrangling over Keystone XL in the United States.
