first_imgWEST VANCOUVER, B.C. – North Peace Secondary’s senior girls volleyball team is in North Vancouver today, practicing ahead of their first appearance at the ‘AAAA’ Girls Volleyball Provincial Championships tomorrow.The girls are in a tough bracket, facing off against host Hansworth, as well as Seaquam and Belmont Secondary’s teams on Thursday. Team coach Dr. Elena Warkentin says that the team is going into the tournament ranked 16th out of the sixteen teams, but that doesn’t phase them. “We know we’re underdogs. We’ve never seen any of these teams before. The key is going to be playing smart, tough defence, and getting serves in,” said Warentin. “That’ll allow us to run our offence and keep putting the ball back in their court.”The provincials run from Thursday until Saturday at both Hansworth and West Vancouver high schools. The North Peace girls take to the court fir their first match Thursday morning at 11:00 PST.

North Montney Mainline Project supported by NEB; one in opposition

first_imgThe project is being proposed by NOVA Gas Transmission and consists of the construction and operation of new facilities, as well as a 301 km sweet natural gas pipeline connecting the company’s Groundbirch Mainline to the North Montney area. It will also connect to the Prince Rupert Gas Transmission Pipeline and later to a LNG plant on the west coast.The project carries with it 45 conditions set out by the NEB, including but not limited to pipeline integrity, protection of the environment and Aboriginal consultation.“The majority of the board is of the view that with the board’s imposed conditions, and with the implementation of [NOVA’s] environmental protection procedures and mitigation, the project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects,” the NEB writes of its decision. “The majority of the board also granted [NOVA’s] request to build temporary infrastructure for the project under section 58 of the NEB Act.”- Advertisement -The board says only one member was in the view that the project should not proceed, citing affected land “that is of special significance to First Nations.”The National Energy Board is an independent federal regulator for several parts of Canada’s energy industry.
