Dear Sea to Sands Conservation Alliance members,
The Joint Review Panel hearings will be starting soon, in a community near you! Due to the overwhelming number of people concerned about the Enbridge’s Northern Gateway Pipeline Project, the National Energy Board received a record-breaking (4300 and counting) registrations for oral presentations. Therefore, the first round of oral presentations will be made by Intervenors, followed by a second round of oral presentations by non-intervenors. Sea to Sands members have numerous ways to participate in the hearings and review process (see below for details). We would like to encourage you to do attend the hearings, make a written submission, or prepare an oral presentation, to ensure that the Joint Review Panel understands that northern British Columbians are opposed to this project.
Oral presentation by Intervenors: January 18th, 2012 @ the Ramada Hotel starting at 6:00 PM. The schedule for intervenors is available here , and you are encouraged to attend any of these sessions, if possible. Sea to Sands Conservation Alliance & Carrier Sekani Tribal Council are organizing a rally and indoor presence. We will provide more details soon.
Oral presentations by non-intervenors: March or April (TBD) S2S will be organizing a local workshop this winter to assist those who have registered to prepare their oral presentation. More details to follow.
Friends of Wild Salmon are offering webinars (online seminars) this week to help people get prepared for presenting at the upcoming Enbridge pipeline hearings.From the comfort of your own home you’ll be able to either phone in and/or follow a live Internet webinar. At the beginning of the webinar, FOWS will be providing a 30-minute overview presentation covering what you can expect and offering ways to maximize the impact of your oral statement. After that, we’ll have a question and answer period for participants.You can register now for the telephone/webinar session by selecting from the following dates/times (click on one of the dates provided):
