VICTORIA - The Province says it will inspect the site the Coastal GasLink gas pipeline following allegations that the company building the project is violating its permits.

Members of the Wet'suwet'en First Nation and supporters have alleged that Coastal GasLink is engaging in construction activity without an archaeological impact assessment and also destroyed traplines and tents unnecessarily. 

The Ministry of Energy, Mines, and Petroleum Resources says in a statement the joint site inspection will be conducted by the province's Environmental Assessment Office and the BC Oil and Gas Commission next week.

The ministry says it anticipates it will take "some time" to determine whether any non-compliances are evident.
