UBC buildings no longer expected to be impacted by natural gas shortage, university says

Several media outlets reported on the pipeline explosion in northern B.C. in relation to UBC’s Vancouver campus.

CBC News said that several hours after the university issued an emergency warning, an update on Wednesday said the university was no longer affected.

An article on News 1130 quoted UBC Joshua Brinkerhoff, an assistant professor at UBC Okanagan’s school of engineering, who said people are unlikely to start freezing. “Natural gas distribution infrastructure is quite robust…I’m sure the gas will be able to get in from other locations,” he said.
