Kitimat mayor says she will stand behind "no" vote on Northern Gateway

Kitimat voters said "no" to the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline project this weekend. In a non-binding plebiscite on Saturday, 58.4 per cent of voters in Kitimat rejected supporting the controversial pipeline project.

Kitimat mayor Joanne Monaghan has not stated her personal opinion on the project, but says she will respect democracy. "I will stand behind them, but it doesn't mean I will throw myself in front of a bulldozer," she said in an interview with CBC Daybreak North's George Baker.
