...the projects won’t go ahead unless they are consulted and approve.

At least four pipelines are being proposed to move natural gas from northeast B.C. to ports on the coast when the product would be turned into liquefied natural gas for export overseas.

In a statement released by the Carrier Sekani Tribal Council, several chiefs say the projects won’t go ahead without the consent of their people and only after there are assessments of how the projects would affect their environment and native title rights.

Chief Terry Teegee says the projects are at risk because there are no agreements in place for First Nations to assess them, and Chief Reg Louis says while his people are willing to do business, it can’t be at the expense of the environment and future generations.

As usual, beware of white men from Big Oil corporations who speak with forked tongue!

Having a pipeline is better than a casino.

First Nations people are not the only ones concerned about the safety record of these corporations.

These projects should and will be either scratched or relocated.
