Over 2,000 letters sent to NEB for public input on Northern Gateway extension

Over 2,000 letters have been written to The National Energy Board with their input on the Northern Gateway Project.

Enbridge is looking for a three-year extension to start building a pipeline that would ship oil across Northwestern BC.

Public feedback will play a factor in the NEB’s decision to approve it, explains Sarah Kiley with the NEB.

“The public is very important to this particular decision. But the panel will have a number of different considerations before them, and it’s really up to them as to how much weight to give to give to a particular situation.”

Northern Gateway has the opportunity to reply to the public’s comments. The NEB expects that done by mid-July.

The NEB is collecting public feedback until Monday, June 27th.
