Hearings on the Northern Gateway pipeline were expected to resume this week, with four days scheduled in the community of Bella Bella, British Columbia.
But the first of those four days has been cancelled, after the expert panelists became afraid for their safety.
Protesters from nearby First Nations communities met them at the airport, and have staged a hunger strike to protest the Northern Gateway project.
It’s not known yet if the remainder of the hearings in Bella Bella will also be cancelled.
