This was the first site to report the eq with the exception of Facebook status updates, but this is where I checked for confirmation because I knew they'd be the first to report. Thanks Merv and staff.
Right on Merv

I got a call from Vancouver - someone had texted her from Terrace and another from Smithers about a quake - I did the Google search and found the Globe & Mail had it and so did CBC but the Mega Global network has no reference to it -

Terrace daily once shows how useless the other media is . Maybe they should read the terrace daily . We shook and shook north of terrace . Thanks again Merv . Even the Canadian geological survey is late to what's happening .

They call it a 7.7....approx. 4500 km/h speed from Haida Gwaii to Terrace, wow....
Another good reason for no pipeline!

Wonder if Enbridge has considered that the coast is quite an area of seismic activity....
