LET'S TALK ENERGY - WHAT'S IN IT FOR US?

The Kitimat Economic Development Association (KEDA) is very excited about the opportunity to showcase the community of Kitimat and to connect representatives from industry and potential new companies, together with the Kitimat community at large and local business. The event “Let’s Talk Energy” – What is in it for Us? opens a door for dialogue between all parties. The community can learn more about energy, the potential investors and how that may affect us, and the potential investors have an opportunity to learn more about the community we live in.

A focus of the Terms of Reference for the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline has specifically identified the need for the Project to demonstrate how it is meeting the Principles of Sustainability.

STUDY OF THE COASTAL CONNECTOR CORRIDOR FROM HOUSTON, BC TO KITIMAT BC

In the spring of 2005 an independent study was conducted by V.N. Maskulak, for the Kitimat Economic Development Commission, to determine the most desirable alternative Corridor route through the Coast Mountains. This initiative was a follow-up on a proposal by the governments of BC and Alberta to analyze the northern corridor. (Mr. Harb Sihota, Project Manager, Corporate Initiatives Branch Ministry of Small Business and Economic Development, March 2004). This study concluded that the Telkwa Pass route would best serve the northwest providing that the slope stability problem in the Copper River could be overcome and that until a west coast terminus of a contemplated utility pipeline route was determined, by the various proponents, no further work would be required.
