Joint Review Panel for Enbridge Northern Gateway Project Releases Preliminary Details on the Community Hearings

CALGARY - The Joint Review Panel (the Panel) conducting the review of the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway Project has released preliminary details on the community hearings, including the list of locations.

The Panel has determined that due to the large number of registrants, it will be visiting some communities more than once to allow all who have registered an opportunity to address the Panel. The Panel will hear oral evidence first from registered Intervenors so that the information request process can proceed according to the schedule. The Panel will then focus on hearing the oral statements of other participants.

The community hearings will begin in Kitimat on 10 January 2012. The Panel will hear oral evidence at the following locations:

  • Bella Bella, BC
  • Bella Coola, BC
  • Burns Lake, BC
  • Courtenay, BC
  • Edmonton, AB
  • Fort St. James, BC
  • Grand Prairie, AB
  • Hartley Bay, BC
  • Kitimat, BC
  • Kitkatla, BC
  • Klemtu, BC
  • Massett, BC
  • Prince George, BC
  • Prince Rupert, BC
  • Queen Charlotte, BC
  • Smithers, BC
  • Terrace, BC

The Panel will return to the above communities, as well as adding the following locations, to hear from those who have registered to give oral statements:

  • Calgary, AB
  • Hazelton, BC
  • Kelowna, BC
  • Port Hardy, BC
  • Vancouver, BC
  • Victoria, BC

Dates, times and venues for each location will be announced at a later date.

The proposed Northern Gateway project involves the construction of two 1,170 kilometre long pipelines running from Bruderheim, Alberta to Kitimat, British Columbia and the construction and operation of the Kitimat Marine Terminal.
