KITIMAT, B.C. - The District of Kitimat, a key hub for the proposed Northern Gateway oil pipeline, will hold a plebiscite to gauge support for the development that is sure to dramatically change the community.
Council's decision follows the Dec. 19 release of a Joint Review Panel decision that approved the pipeline and tanker project carrying bitumen from Alberta's oil sands across B.C., for shipment to Asia.
The federal government has the final say on the pipeline, which came with 209 conditions, and must reveal its decision within the next six months.
