First Nation wants LNG Canada export licence revoked


It has been approved to export 670 million tonnes of liquefied natural gas from Kitimat over 25 years.

According to the CBC, Gitxaala First Nation chief councillor Elmer Moody says his community wasn’t consulted by the federal government, which he says is part of their obligations. He claims the project would have an affect the harvesting of resources in his community, as well as the environment.

However, a Shell Canada spokesperson says those issues will be dealt with later on, and have nothing to do with the export licence. LNG submitted their plans for the pipeline and liquefied natural gas export terminal at Kitimat to federal and provincial environmental regulatory agencies earlier this week.
