If you have concerns or comments about the pipeline that would serve the proposed Pacific NorthWest LNG terminal on Lelu Island, now is the time to make them known.

TransCanada Pipeline kicked off the environmental assessment for its Prince Rupert Gas Transmission (PRGT) Project on May 16, which includes a a 45-day public comment period that runs from May 26 to July 9. Part of that public comment period will be an open house from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.  at the Port Edward Community Centre on June 17.

The project includes a 900-kilometre pipeline from the Hudson’s Hope area to Lelu Island, including underwater pipeline from the Nass Valley to Port Edward. TransCanada’s president of development Alex Pourbaix said it’s important people weigh in on a project he says is important to the province’s future.

“By transporting natural gas to export markets, PRGT will support thousands of jobs in the natural gas sector and other industries and provide significant tax revenue for government, which helps to pay for the important social services British Columbians and other Canadians rely upon,” he said.
