OTTAWA Jan 21 (Reuters) - The influential mayor of Montreal and other local municipal leaders will on Thursday announce their formal opposition to TransCanada Corp's proposed Energy East pipeline, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp said.

Energy East, which would take oil from Alberta and Saskatchewan to the east coast, is running into increasing political problems as environmental and aboriginal groups ramp up protests against the project.
