Appointed advisors

We committed to doing what was necessary to ensure this process moved forward in the right way, through meaningful consultations, and to properly address all the concerns raised in the decision of the Federal Court of Appeal. We appointed a Federal Representative to oversee the consultation and accommodation process and also appointed a marine technical advisor to the National Energy Board (NEB).
