A northwest BC environmental group is crying foul over ads promoting a liquefied natural gas project near Prince Rupert.
Friends of Wild Salmon calls Pacific NorthWest LNG’s advertising campaign misleading because it claims the project design would protect eelgrass beds at Flora Bank critical to Skeena salmon.
Luanne Roth of the T. Buck Suzuki Environmental Foundation says the full-page ads fail to mention the 400-plus pilings needed for the LNG terminal’s trestle and berth.
Roth says while many residents are not opposed to LNG development on the North Coast, she says Pacific NorthWest LNG needs to find a different location for its terminal.
Friends of Wild Salmon is calling on the company to publicly retract the advertising campaign.
