Port Edward offers support to Prince Rupert Gas Transmission pipeline

The District of Port Edward council has lent its support the TransCanada's Prince Rupert Gas Transmission project (PRGT).

The District of Port Edward council has lent its support the TransCanada’s Prince Rupert Gas Transmission project (PRGT), becoming the second northwest municipal government to do so.

In a letter sent to project president Dean Patry, Mayor Dave MacDonald said the district is in favour of seeing the pipeline that would feed the Pacific NorthWest LNG terminal come to fruition.

“The District of Port Edward council supports our business community together as we move forward as the host location for the Pacific NorthWest LNG liquefaction facility. TransCanada Prince Rupert Gas Transmission Project plays an important role in the development of this project,” reads the letter.

“We believe that PRGT has demonstrated commitment to meaningful engagement with the District of Port Edward and the surrounding area through project updates to council on a regular basis and invitations to community members to attend open houses to learn more about the project and its benefits and provide input to our project team.”

The District of Port Edward joins the City of Terrace, which passed a motion to write a letter of support in late September, in expressing its support for both the pipeline and the terminal on Lelu Island.
