The Joint Review Panel for the Enbridge Northern Gateway project has changed the location and schedule for the community hearings on Haida Gwaii. The first hearing will now be held in the Old Massett community hall on Feb. 28 and 29, starting at 9 am on both days. The panel will return to Haida Gwaii for another two days of hearings at the Skidegate community hall on March 21 and 22. These community hearings are being held to hear oral evidence from registered intervenors. They were originally scheduled for Masset and Queen Charlotte on Feb. 28 and 29, but have been changed at the request of the Council of the Haida Nation, with support from the villages of Port Clements, Queen Charlotte and Masset.
