You have until Aug. 31 to submit your letter of comment on your views, knowledge, concerns on the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline Project Joint Review Panel.

Come and listen to the oral presenters this Friday at the Comox Community Centre on Noel Avenue in Comox.

Your grandchildren will thank you.
