Concerns have been raised that the proposed natural gas pipeline to service the Woodfibre LNG would endanger the local watersheds.
Pipeline’s pathway goes through the major water source of the municipality, reports Squamish Chief, and concerned councilor Patricia Heintzman said that no municipality would allow any activity around local watersheds.
Calls for detailed scrutiny of the pipeline have been raised, even though natural gas is non-toxic and non-soluble in water.
Fortis BC spokesperson has said that the pipeline will not go ahead if it doesn’t get the approval.
