Kispiox survey work was above board

Ken Paulson responds to a recent column suggesting survey work in the Kispiox Valley lacked permits

Dear Sir:

I was concerned by statements made in your Oct. 23 paper (Lack of permits for pipeline survey is troubling, A7) suggesting there were infractions made when surveying work was done by industry in the Kispiox Valley. Residents should know this work is not contravening any laws.

These activities are governed primarily by the Land Surveyor’s Act, and all land surveyors in B.C. must adhere to the requirements of this Act.

The BC Oil and Gas Commission has conducted inspections on the activities in the Kispiox area, as has the Ministry of Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations. These inspections showed no contravention from those activities authorized under legislation.

If anyone has concerns about the activities related to the surveying, they can contact the Commission at 250-794-5200 and we will follow up with the companies involved.

Ken Paulson, P.Eng.
