Coastal GasLink Hosts "Economic Summit" in Terrace Today

John Crawford

Terrace area businesses and contractors get a chance today to meet with the companies in charge of building a natural gas pipeline from northeastern BC to the LNG Canada terminal to be built in Kitimat.

TransCanada's Coastal GasLink is hosting what it's calling an "Economic Summit" all day long at the Terrace Sportsplex.

On hand will be Coastal GasLink representatives, as well as its prime contractor and the subcontractors in charge of clearing and work camps.

Interested businesses were required to register ahead of time and the meetings were pre-scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. 


Several such meetings have already been held in other communities along the pipeline route, as TransCanada prepares to begin construction of the megaproject.

While it's generated a lot of excitement in those communities, there is also opposition to the project -- last Tuesday, a small group of Coastal GasLink representatives were turned back by Unist'ot'en Hereditary Chiefs as they attempted to cross a bridge on the Morice River. 

The chiefs have set up what they're calling a "reoccupation camp" in the area, as they continue to battle the pipeline project.
