Decision time for Pacific NorthWest LNG project, Shopping carts on the loose

Decision time for Pacific NorthWest LNG project

The federal government is expected to make its decision on whether or not it will approve of the liquefied natural gas terminal on Lelu Island.

Pacific NorthWest LNG submitted its final response to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA) in June, and Minister of Environment and Climate Change Catherine McKenna had 90 days to decide whether or not to green light the $11.4 billion project.

The initial deadline was in March, but CEAA extended the process after the agency asked for more information from the proponent.

Shopping carts on the loose

The Rupert Square Shopping Centre plans to take action to deal with the missing carts from major retail chains.

Last Wednesday, the Northern View published an article revealing that more than 150 shopping carts had been found and impounded by the City of Prince Rupert. In response to the article, mall manager Maggie Viviers informed the Northern View that “the mall is in a process to put a petition together to see if we can get these businesses to put back the pay-per-use mechanism.”
