The Joint Review Panel (the Panel) conducting the review of the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway Project has released the schedule for the first portion of the community hearings for oral statements.
The Panel will begin hearing oral statements in Grande Prairie, AB, on March 28, 2012. Individuals who registered by the October 2011 deadline and who are not intervenors are able to make an oral statement. The Panel will start by hearing oral statements in locations near the proposed Project area. Priority will be given to local residents when finalizing the order of appearances for the community hearing locations. The schedule for this first portion of the community hearings for oral statements can be found on the panel's website.
Oral Statements, according to the JRP, are an opportunity to provide the Panel with knowledge, views or concerns on the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway Project in person during the community hearings.
