Final JRP report on Enbridge pipeline proposal to be released Thursday

The Joint Review Panel will reveal their final recommendations to the government this Thursday.

The Joint Review Panel which is looking at whether or not to recommend an oil pipeline, which will run from Alberta to Kitimat, will release their final report on Thursday at 2:30 p.m. MST. (That’s 1:30 p.m. local time.)

The JRP has spent months considering the evidence collected through the public hearing process and their recommendations, whether in favour or not of proceeding with the project, will be submitted to the federal government, who will then have final say on if the project should be allowed to proceed.

The report will include the JRP’s opinion on if the project should proceed and, if so, a list of conditions the project would have to follow.

The report, once posted, will be available here.
