Leaving a lasting legacy in Terrace, Burns Lake and Fraser Lake

Posted by Coastal GasLink


Coastal GasLink is committed to working with communities along our proposed route. That means investing in initiatives that matter to you, like the much-anticipated Splash Park in Terrace.

In addition to the Splash Park, Coastal GasLink has also contributed $30,000 to an important restoration project in Burns Lake. With many years of wear and tear, the surface of the airport runway has deteriorated, making it appropriate for us to invest in a project so closely aligned with our focus on safety.

“The Baker Airport is a vital asset to our community. Our residents rely on it for medical evac services as well as forest fire protection and emergency services. Resurfacing the runway will ensure the continued safety of the Lakes District and we are very grateful to the funders for their support,” said Luke Strimbold, Mayor, Village of Burns Lake.

The Village of Fraser Lake also recently received an important boost from Coastal GasLink with an investment of $29,000 in new playground equipment. The playground upgrade intends to support family activities by providing accessible community infrastructure for residents at White Swan Park, where many families gather. Check back in the coming weeks for the video and to see the impact the playground is already having on residents.
