Spectators will not be allowed to attend Victoria hearings into the Enbridge Northern Gateway project in January, to avoid the risk of demonstrations.

Instead, people interested in watching the proceedings will be sent about three kilometres away to the Ramada Hotel on Gorge Road, where they can watch a live video feed. The hearings are being held at the Delta Ocean Pointe.

Annie Roy, spokeswoman for the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency, said federal Joint Review Panel members decided to take the step to ensure they could hear speakers in a respectful atmosphere.
