As concern grows over a challenge of the Coastal GasLink pipeline’s jurisdiction, one First Nations group is throwing their support behind the 4.7 billion dollar project.
The First Nations LNG Alliance has joined the mayors of 14 BC communities and 20 First Nations along the pipeline’s route in support of the natural gas project.
Last month, a challenge was issued claiming the pipeline needed to seek federal approval, a process which would stall the project even further.
The pipeline would supply natural gas to the proposed LNG Canada project in Kitimat.
With a final investment decision in the 40 billion dollar plant coming soon, a delay could pose a significant threat to the project’s future.
