Joint Review Panel asking for comments on Enbridge Northern Gateway Application

The Joint Review Panel created to hear Enbridge's application for the Northern Gateway Pipeline has released a procedural order requesting comments from interested parties:


The entire procedural direction can be viewed at: Joint Panel Procedural Direction.

While the order requires that Enbridge serve a number of parties with a copy of the order, there still seems to be no requirement that Enbridge notify affected non-Aboriginal landowners directly regarding the Joint Review Panel process or this comment submission process. 

Written comments must be received by the Panel no later than September 8, 2010.  There will also be three panel sessions held to hear oral comments.  The dates for the sessions and deadlines for registration are set out in the order.


If you're a landowner along the proposed route, or know someone who is, you can find out more about how landowners may be affected by the pipeline and what they can do to respond by contacting the Canadian Association of Energy and Pipeline Landowner Associations (CAEPLA).
