Both viewpoints of pipeline explored in talks

The Canadian Club of Victoria hosting experts on topic

The Canadian Club of Victoria will hear directly from the company behind the Northern Gateway Pipeline, in an upcoming talk about the controversial proposal.

Janet Holder, executive vice-president of Western Access at Enbridge, has agreed to speak at the event on Nov. 20. Her talk is called ‘Why Northern Gateway is in our national interest.’

On Nov. 27, the club will present the other side of the debate.

Tom Gunton is director of resource and environmental planning at Simon Fraser University. His talk is called ‘Enbridge’s Northern Gateway Proposal: Facts, Myths and Prospects.’

The Canadian Club’s mandate is to provide a forum to explore the issues that matter to the nation. Anyone interested is encouraged to reserve tickets early.

The cost is $25 for members, $30 for non-members.
