Enbridge hearings return to the North Coast

The long running Enbridge road show has left behind the Lower Mainland and Okanagan sessions and worked its way back to the North Coast, where the last of the public sessions will move forward through the Spring.

The controversial hearings have provided for much discussion and emotion across the province. The  recent Vancouver, Victoria and Okanagan sessions making for protests in the streets at times and a closing of the doors to only those who had registered to speak in front of the panel.

The homestretch of the proceedings is now in sight however, with Prince Rupert  playing host to the final public sessions through February, March, April and May.

The sessions at the North Coast Meeting and Convention Centre will run as follows:

February 4-8                 8:30 to 3:30 PM
February 18-23             8:30 to 3:30 PM (Saturday 8:30 to 12:30 PM)
February 25--March 1  8:30 to 3:30 PM
March 11-16                  8:30 to 3:30 PM (Saturday 8:30 to 12:30 PM)
March 18-22                  8:30 to 3:30 PM
April 2-6                         8:30 to 3:30 PM (Saturday 8:30 to 12:30 PM)
April 8-12                       8:30 to 3:30 PM
April 22-27                     8:30 to 3:30 PM (Saturday 8:30 to 12:30 PM)
April 29-- May 3            8:30 to 3:30 PM
May 13-18                      8:30 to 3:30 PM (Saturday 8:30-12:30 PM)
