Northern Gateway hearings on move to Terrace, B.C.
By: The Canadian Press
KITAMAAT VILLAGE, B.C. – Kitimat area residents were almost unanimous in their rejection of the proposed Northern Gateway oil pipeline project during two days of public hearings, and now it’s time for other northwest B.C. communities to provide their views on the development.
The Northern Gateway project joint review panel assessing the environmental effects of the proposed project moves to Terrace today and Smithers on Monday.
Hundreds of people gathered at a community hall in the aboriginal community of Kitamaat Village to address the three-member panel, with all but one of the more than one dozen individuals and groups denouncing the project on environmental, social and cultural grounds.
