A community office for the proposed Trans Canada Coastal Gaslink Pipeline will open soon in Smithers.
Spokesperson Bruce Wells says they’ve been contemplating opening offices across the footprint of the project during the planning stages.
“This one seemed about right for the time,” he says. “There is lots of engagement going on in Smithers. Smithers is a very welcoming and curious community. So we thought, we’ve got lots of work up there, lots of interaction with First Nations and it was time to open the office.”
The office will open sometime in May on Third Avenue.
The proposed pipeline would deliver natural gas from northeast B.C. to the west coast to be exported.
