Alton Natural Gas LP has filed an application requesting safe access to its Alton River facilities near Shubenacadie, and is seeking to remove “trespassing” protesters who have “consistently” blocked access to the site. Protesters gather at the Alton Natural Gas Storage LP office in Stewiacke, N.S., on October 4, 2016. Alton Natural Gas LP says it has filed an application in the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia requesting safe access to its Alton River facilities near Shubenacadie, and seeking to remove protesters who are trespassing on its property and who have "consistently" blocked access to the site. The case will be heard March 12 in the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia, Alton spokesperson Lori MacLean said Friday. Alton maintains the project will provide millions of dollars in savings to natural gas customers in Nova Scotia.
