Moricetown hosts pipeline forum
The Moricetown band is hosting a forum with politicians, First Nations and the proponents of the Pacific Trails Pipeline project.
Moricetown economic development officer, Darlene Glaim says local MLA Doug Donaldson, Minister of Natural Gas Development, Rich Coleman and Minister of Aboriginal Relations, John Rustad will be attending the event along with representatives from Chevron/Apache.
“People are concerned about this project, environmentally affecting the fish. You know how Moricetown loves the beautiful salmon going through. And there are so many other concerns within the traditional territories of the community. So this is a community-focused meeting.”
Glaim says everyone should come out to hear presentations on the economic opportunities of the pipeline as well as its environmental impacts.
“It’s very important for the Moricetown community…to attend this meeting and learn more about what this project is and how it will impact you…and how you can have your concerns heard and met.”
The forum runs at the Multiplex from 9:30am to 4:00pm on Wednesday and Thursday with an open house on Wednesday evening for anyone who can’t attend the daily meetings.
