Letters to the Editor

Pipeline expertise offered to Langley Township

Editor: I have sent the following letter to Langley Township council:

As the voice of Langley Township citizens, you have a duty to apply for intervenor status to address associated concerns about the pipeline expansion project, and there are many. Without your application, citizens have no collective voice. This in itself is reason enough to apply. We have until the application deadline of Feb. 12, three weeks. This provides sufficient time to gather reasons to support Township’s application.

George Penner of Abbotsford is my fellow board member, Region 2 (Lower Mainland), B.C. Wildlife Federation. He is a senior pipeline construction and maintenance engineer, with years of hands-on practical experience.

As a member of our 42,000-member conservation organization, he also has a commitment for fish and wildlife habitat conservation. If invited to do so, I’m sure he would be willing to present his concerns to council.

He also chairs our Region 2, B.C. Wildlife Federation Kinder Morgan pipeline committee.

Larri Woodrow,

Langley
