Meet Edward: Construction Monitor & Community Liaison for Coastal GasLink
Edward is a proud member of the Wet’suwet’en Nation and Gitdumden member who’s working on the Coastal GasLink Project. Edward was working in the field before Christmas, installing bridges in Section 8.
The sentiment expressed by him in this video is an example of Coastal GasLink’s extraordinary legacy in action.
Harry Bodewitz, Coordinator, Construction Monitoring and Community Liaison (CMCL) Program, says that Edward is pleased that his perspective is being shared.
“It is a tribute to all the hard work and success in providing a positive construction experience to community members. At times it is difficult to place a value on the importance of our efforts that we have given to the Project to date. When you hear the words that have come from Ed, you know that we have made a difference in the lives of those community members that are participating in a meaningful way,” says Bodewitz.
Coastal GasLink has agreements with all 20 First Nation governments along the route, including the chiefs and councils elected to represent the five Wet’suwet’en bands, and who represent people like Edward.
