Submissions to JRP urged

The proposed Northern Gateway Enbridge pipeline is now in the Joint Review Panel stage, which is an independent federal review by a three-person panel.

Dear sir,

The proposed Northern Gateway Enbridge pipeline is now in the Joint Review Panel stage, which is an independent federal review by a three-person panel.

The only things the panel can consider in their deliberations are evidence and comments presented via this process and therefore on the public record.

Everyone has the opportunity to speak and write to the Joint Review Panel. If you do not, your ideas, passions and concerns will not be considered in the process.

Rallies are great and so are letters to the editor, but the only things the JRP has to consider are written and oral submissions.

The deadline to register to give an oral statement is October 6, and letters of comment can be submitted until March.

Please seriously consider making an oral presentation (you are limited to10 minutes) to the Joint Review Panel.

The important thing to note is that you won’t be allowed to voice your views unless you have registered to speak.

Many of us have not done this kind of thing before, but this is our chance to speak directly to the JRP!

The link to the site where you can register to make an oral presentations by 11 a.m. October 6 is: http://gatewaypanel.review-examen.gc.ca/efile/oralstatement.aspx

Please consider registering. Give yourself a voice in this process.

If you need help to register contact Margaret Ouwehand at 250-632-3337.

 

Cheryl Brown.
