Enbridge survey deadline is tonight

Terrace and District Chamber of Commerce members asked for Northern Gateway opinion

MEMBERS OF the Terrace and District Chamber of Commerce are being reminded they have until midnight tonight to fill out an online questionnaire about the Enbridge Northern Gateway project.

The questionnaire is being used by the chamber’s board to determine if it should or should not support the controversial $5.5 billion project to build an oil-carrying pipeline from Alberta to a marine export terminal at Kitimat.

The chamber board will able to craft its position only if at least 50 per cent of its nearly 300 members fill out the questionnaire, says chamber executive director Carol Fielding.

“It would be unfortunate to be in a position where the chamber board couldn’t prepare a position statement on behalf of its members,” she said.

“We need at least 145 responses,” added Fielding of the 50 per cent threshold.

She said responses will be treated in strict confidence and that only a summary of survey results would be released to the public.

Members can only fill out the survey once.

The questionnaire asks for opinions on 12 statements, with the first being whether or not the review panel struck to examine the project was an adequate process and the last one being whether the member filling out the survey supports the project or not.
