The Alberta energy company Enbridge is currently in the process of seeking a five year extension towards their plans for the Westcoast Connector Gas Transmission project and as part of their engagement with the BC Environmental office, they are seeking the support from municipal government's along the project route.

As we outlined back in July, Enbridge had provided some additional background on the projectwhich would see a Liquefied Natural Gas Terminal developed at Ridley Island.

In documentation for City councillors to review prior to this evening's session, Enbridge outlines some of the circumstances that have brought delays to their project and why they require the five year extension from the government agency.
