Terrace area businesses and job seekers will have a chance to meet the companies tasked with buiding the gas pipeline that will feed the LNG Canada terminal Tuesday.
Coastal GasLink is hosting what it calls Regional Economic Summits designed to connect its prime and subcontractors with local vendors.
TransCanada’s Coastal GasLink pipeline will transport gas from the Dawson Creek area along a 670 kilometre route to the LNG Canada liquefied natural gas terminal being built in Kitimat.
Similar meetings have been held in communities near the pipeline corridor. While many are supportive of the potential of jobs related to the project, there remain concerns about the pipeline’s impact on the land, water, and animals.
A small group of Coastal GasLink representitives hoping to cross the Morice River for fieldwork last week were turned back by Unist’ot’en Camp members who have reoccupied the land .
The Unist’ot’en, back by some Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs, don’t want the pipeline crossing the territory.
The summit is being held at the Terrace Sportsplex until seven o’clock Tuesday evening.
