Communication manager for the Oil and Gas Commission Alan Clay confirms the sign was placed on the road that leads into the Barbour Falls and Nesbitt’s Knee Falls hiking trails.

“CNRL is doing some construction activity in the area, and they just put up that barricade to advise motorists in the area using the trails to be cautious that the road was closed and someone placed that sign inappropriately,” explains Clay.

Clay says the OGC noticed the use of the sign through the Tumbler Ridge Tourism Facebook page. He also says CNRL is being informed that misusing the H2S Gas sign caused unnecessary concern within the community.

“We’ve actually advised CNRL to let them know that the misuse of that sign has caused unnecessary concern for those using the nearby recreational trails,” says Clay.

It should be noted Barber Creek Road still remains closed while CNRL continues their construction activity.

A time in which construction will conclude could not be confirmed.
