Kitimat Votes: Enbridge to hold two plebiscite campaign open houses in Kitimat

Enbridge Northern Gateway will hold two campaign Open Houses to push the yes side for the upcoming Kitimat plebiscite on the controversial project.

Sources have told Northwest Coast Energy News that the first Open House, hosted by Northern Gateway President, John Carruthers, will take place at the Rod and Gun on Tuesday, April 1.

The second Open House will be hosted by Janet Holder, Enbridge’s Executive Vice President of Western Access, on Tuesday, April 8, also at the Rod and Gun.

The sources say that many of the technical and emergency response experts that have appeared at previous Northern Gateway Open Houses and forums will also be present at the campaign events.

Kitimat will vote on the plebiscite on April 12.

The question, as drafted by District of Kitimat Council is:

Do you support the final report recommendations of the Joint Review Panel (JRP) of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency and National Energy Board, that the Enbridge Northern Gateway project be approved, subject to 209 conditions set out in Volume 2 of the JRP’s final report?
