First Nations leaders opposed to LNG at UN

First Nations leaders from northwestern BC have travelled to New York to appeal to the United Nations for help fighting a proposed liquefied natural gas plant near Prince Rupert.

Nine Allied Tribes of Lax Kw’alaams say the $36-billion Pacific Northwest LNG plant slated for Lelu Island at the mouth of the Skeena River threatens wild salmon habitat.

They want to the world body to urge the Canadian government to reject the development.

A member of the delegation to the UN, Hereditary Chief John Ridsdale, says the Petronas-led plant is the wrong project in the wrong place at the wrong time.
