Open house in Dawson Creek for proposed Coastal GasLink Pipeline

It will include information about air quality, sustainability of wildlife populations, fish and fish habitat, employment opportunities, social and economic considerations, transportation, traditional and recreational land use, and heritage issues.

During that time period, four open houses will also be held throughout the region, including one in Dawson Creek on Thursday, March 21 at the Best Western Dawson Creek Hotel from 5 to 8 p.m.
Taking public and First Nations comments and concerns into consideration, the EAO will issue the final AIR which will provide Coastal GasLink with specific information that will be required in the environmental assessment.
The approximately 650 kilometre proposed pipeline would run from the Groundbirch area near Dawson Creek to the proposed LNG Canada liquefied natural gas export facility near Kitimat. It would initially have the capacity to flow approximately 1.7 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day. With further expansion, it could deliver up to approximately 5.0 billion cubic feet per day.
