Kitimat is planning another public forum on Enbridge. On Monday, March 5th, Murray Minchin of Douglas Channel Watch made a presentation on the dangers which could come from having a bitumen pipeline exposed to the elements in an avalanche area on Nimbus Mountain.
On Monday, March 19th, Councillor Mario Feldhoff made a motion to hold a second public forum.
“Mr. Minchin raised a number of very important issue concerning the upper Kitimat river and Nimbus Mountain and a number of the various areas there, risk aside, etc. I think it’s appropriate that we give Enbridge an opportunity in addressing those questions…,” said Councillor Mario Feldhoff.
He expressed this is an important issue for the community and the community would benefit from hearing what Enbridge would say on these issues.
The motion was called and carried.

Another forum to listen to a Corporate Company who does not tell the truth. When is Council going to have the backbone to bring this to a vote!! We have all the facts, lets stand up and be counted like the rest of the Northern Municipalities.
nows our chance

shut off the t.v., say your bit, show your support and concerns no matter what side of the fence you are on, There is no shame in having an opinion, it is your right, lets get this dealt with as a community of friends and intelligent neighbours, research your concerns through factual and proven information, your voice counts, let it be heard, i have my opinion and you have yours, let democracy work, if a pipeline is required for the economic growth oh B.C., so be it, lets just make sure it is safe for all generations and is sustainable with no faults on living habitat and economic futures

This is just another stalling tactic, typical politician's.
Council has had the opportunity as interveenors to raise these questions many times.
These risks have been brought to council's attention previously, by Mr Minchin.
You know the old saying when in ROME:
" COUNCIL FIDDLES WHILE KITIMAT GETS COVERED IN OIL"
