Mayor Joanne Monaghan of Kitimat, one of the communities most impacted by this project, says she’s pleased a decision has finally been made, but still has some concerns.
“It’s sort of like being pregnant. Am I pregnant. Am I not pregnant? Then, you finally find out your pregnant. And I think it’s due diligence for the district of Kitimat and the councillors make sure that those commitments for the 209 conditions and the five for the province, that they’re being met.”
In April, residents of Kitimat recently voted against approving the pipeline, but their wishes were not binding.
