The public is invited to attend information sessions being held for the proposed Lower Churchill Hydroelectric Generation Project.

The sessions are expected to give aboriginal groups, the public, governments and other interested parties an opportunity to hear about how the panel review will proceed and how they can participate.

The dates and locations of the information sessions are as follows:
May 11 and May 12 in Goose Bay, Hotel North 2, 382 Hamilton River Rd., 7 to 9 p.m.; May 11 in Cartwright, Cartwright Hotel, Route 516, Airstrip Road from 7-9 p.m.; May 12, Rigolet Community Hall from 7-9 p.m.; May 13, Churchill Falls Community Centre from 7-9 p.m.; May 14, Labrador City/Wabush at the Wabush Hotel, 9 Grenfell Dr. from 7-9 p.m.
