The Enbridge Joint Review Panel has announced the details of a number of community hearings being held in early 2012.

The Enbridge Joint Review Panel has announced the details of a number of community hearings being held in early 2012, but Vanderhoof is not on the list.

Hearings will take place between January and March 2012 and will be held in Kitimat, Terrace, Smithers, Burns Lake, Prince George, Edmonton, Fort St. James, Bella Bella, Prince Rupert, Masset, Queen Charlotte, Grande Prairie, and Courtenay.

The hearing in Fort St. James will be held on February 2 at 9 a.m., at the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 268, 330 4th Avenue East. The hearing in Prince George will take place on January 18 at 6 p.m. at the Ramada Hotel Downtown.

The panel will hear from registered intervenors during the meetings, and so far, more than 4,000 people have applied to be able to contribute to the hearings.

 

While the deadline to register to speak at the hearings has passed, a late request can still be made. Alternatively you can have your opinions heard by writing a letter by March 13, 2012. Registration is done online at gatewaypanel.review-examen.gc.ca. The joint review panel hope to have the final decision about the pipeline project made around at the end of 2013.
