RE: Alton Gas Community Engagement Session-September 19, 2016

Dear Band Members,

On September 19, 2016 representatives from Alta Gas will be in Indian Brook at the Multipurpose Centre to discuss their Alton Gas Natural Gas Storage project. The purpose of this meeting is to provide Band Members with an opportunity to review facts about the proposed gas storage project. After Alta’s presentations, Band Members will be provided an opportunity to share their perspectives with the proponent. The following will be the tentative agenda for this engagement session.

6:00pm – Alta Gas Presentation
7:00pm – Question Period
8:00pm – Open discussion between Sipekne’katik Leadership/Band Members (Alta will not be present for this agenda item).

I would like to encourage all Band Members to attend this community engagement session. The Chief and Council would like to have input from our Band members on how to proceed regarding this issue. To ensure your voice is heard it is very important for you to attend. Where this is a Band Membership engagement session, the meeting will be closed to any individuals that are not members of Sipekne’katik Band.

If you have any questions regarding this, please feel free to contact me anytime.
