The Joint Review Panel conducting the review of the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway Project has released preliminary details on the community hearings, including the list of locations.
Because of the huge number of people having registered to make presentations to the panel, it has decided that some communities – including Kitimat – will be visited more than once.
The Panel will hear oral evidence first from registered intervenors so that the information request process can proceed according to schedule.
It will then hear the oral statements of other participants.
The community hearings will begin here on January 10.
The other communities that will get two visits are Bella Bella, Bella Coola, Burns Lake, Courtenay, Edmonton, Fort St. James, Grand Prairie, Hartley Bay, Kitkatla, Klemtu, Massett, Prince George, Prince Rupert, Queen Charlotte City, Smithers, and Terrace.
Single visits are planned for Calgary, Hazelton, Kelowna, Port Hardy, Vancouver and Victoria.
Dates, times and venues for each location will be announced at a later date.
