Councillors in Port Edward want Enbridge to come speak to them at a regular meeting, and say being left out during the company’s visit to the area last week left a sour taste in their mouth.
“Enbridge had a meeting with the City of Prince Rupert and I know we weren’t invited. I am not left with a good impression of them from that,” said councilor Knut Bjorndal.
“If they were in town they should have taken the time to meet with this council. We are a municipality and we represent a large are on the north coast. Enbridge’s project won’t just affect Prince Rupert but it will affect Port Edward.”
In asking Enbridge to a council meeting, councilor Bjorndal suggested the letter be worded strongly enough that the company realize the importance of speaking to the municipality.
“I think we should write them and say we want them to come to council, and if they don’t attend then we will consider it a slight on our community,” he said.
