City of Prince Rupert wants Pinnacle Renewable Energy to be held accountable

The City of Prince Rupert wants answers from Pinnacle Renewable Energy on dust and odour coming from the terminal.

In the 48 hours prior to last night’s city council meeting, Coun. Barry Cunningham said he was contacted by six people regarding dust and odour coming from Pinnacle. According to Cunningham, people have witnessed workers hosing the silos to get rid of dust that collected on them.

“It’s getting ridiculous. This so-called poster project of the port has turned into a nightmare for the residents of the area. They can’t enjoy their sun decks or even walk across 2nd Ave. bridge,” said Cunningham.

“It seems it’s an abyss. We’re going down further and further all of the time.”

Cunningham made a motion to have representatives from Pinnacle Renewable Energy make a presentation to council to try and resolve the ongoing issue or have the company hold a public meeting to speak with residents themselves.

“It’s like they are ignoring everyone and will keep doing things the way they want to do it. I really believe as a city council we need to get these parties together and get this resolved. I don’t know how we can hold them accountable. They seem to think they are above everyone. But it’s time we dragged them in here and got them to talk,” said Cunningham.
