Liidlii Kue Chief Gerry Antoine says his community still has concerns ahead of next month’s National Energy Board hearing about Enbridge’s Line 21.

“Our people are not necessarily engaged with development like we were in the 1970s. The thing is that if there’s something going to happen, they have to deal with us,” Antoine told CKLB.

He is in Yellowknife this week to meet with officials from Enbridge.

No word of jobs regarding the repairs have been made public at this time.

A spokesperson with Enbridge  says the National Energy Board will have the final say on the project.

“The NEB has said they will make a decision on the project 12 weeks within following the hearing.”

The Mackenzie Valley Land Water Board will also hold an oral hearing in Fort Simpson in conjunction with the NEB Hearing the week of October 23rd in Fort Simpson.
