National Energy Board confirms its proposed intervenor funding program still not available

In response to a request by the Peace Environmental and Safety Trustees Society (PESTS) regarding Spectra's proposed Dawson project, the National Energy Board (NEB) has confirmed that its proposed intervenor funding program is still not in place and is not available for participation in current processes.  Because Spectra's application was filed before the program has been initiated (which the NEB says will take place in fall 2010), Spectra will not be required to deal with participants in its application that have the benefit of whatever funding is eventually made available.

Read the NEB's response to PESTS at: GH-3-2010 Letter re participant funding.
