Enbridge recently invited leaders from northern B.C. to tour the Kalamazoo River so they could observe the companies clean-up efforts following a 2010 spill that shut the river down for almost two years. While Terrace city council is opposed to Enbridge's proposed Northern Gateway pipeline project, they sent deputy fire chief David Jephson for his observations. He tells Daybreak's Andrew Kurjata that his message now is for people in the northwest opposed to the project to take a closer look at the facts.
