THOSE OPPOSING Enbridge’s planned Northern Gateway oil pipeline are planning a rally late this afternoon in Terrace’s George Little Park.

Speeches and music will precede a march coinciding with the resumption of hearings by a federal panel into the $5.5 billion plan to build a 1,100 kilometre oil-carrying pipeline from Alberta to a marine export terminal at Kitimat.

The hearings begin tonight at 7 pm at the Kitsumkalum Community Hall and carry on into the week.

They consist of 10-minute oral presentations by people and, so far, 60 people are on the list to speak here.

Those scheduled to speak have the option of wearing a blue scarf with an embroidered salmon on it that’s been adopted as a symbol by those opposed to the pipeline’s construction.’

Aaron Greycloud, one of those scheduled to speak tonight, said those giving presentations aren’t allowed to wear clothing displaying slogans.

“That’s why we have these,” said Greycloud displaying one of the scarves.

Close to 130 people spoke in Smithers two weeks ago when the federal panel heard 10-minute presentations there.
