No discussion of the mayor and council taking a position on the proposed Northern Gateway Project has yet taken place as of press time.
The topic may be discussed at a special meeting at 7 p.m. on July 31, but there was still some uncertainty as of last Friday.
Mayor Rob MacDougall had pledged to discuss taking a stand on the issue back in May when community members came forward to ask council to take a position against the project.
Since then, public opinion was solicited from the community, through an open house and an opinion poll, but various factors seem to have delayed the discussion and vote by mayor and council.
“I’ve stated all along that unless there’s all of us there, we con’t be making a decision,” said MacDougall.
“I did hope to have it done mid-July,” he said. “I just can’t predict people being away and holidays.”
