The Northern Gateway Alliance, a community coalition established to support the project, was in Grande Prairie for a reception to meet its local members and try to increase membership Wednesday night.
The alliance bills itself as being independent, however Enbridge does pay Kinsley for his work.
Note that this is in Alberta where they're struggling to find supporters. They are also, according to the article, "pushing hard" for memberships within B.C. and, presumably, finding even less than the 50 around Grande Prairie.
