Coastal GasLink is proud to support the District of Kitimat with funding towards the Clean Up Kitamaat / Kitimat campaigns. The first campaign ran April 1 – 15, 2016 with the second clean-up campaign planned for September 2016. The campaign slogan is “Working together, we can make our community cleaner and greener”, and focuses on safety hazards, reducing harm to the environment (wildlife, waterways), litter and how it affects the local economy and insecure loads on vehicles.
“The Clean Up Kitamaat/Kitimat campaign was a huge success! The District of Kitimat was thrilled to partner with the Haisla Nation, RCMP, and the Ministry of Transportation to engage the public and raise awareness of how we can all work together to keep our communities clean. With the help of many others we were able to produce videos that clearly presented the campaign’s message. Additionally, with the support of TransCanada’s Coastal GasLink project we were able to hand out prizes to community members already doing their part, which created even more excitement around the campaign.”
