“We invited First Nations communities from Alberta, the Northwest Territories, and the Yukon. We’ve also invited industry and government to speak about the shale gas and LNG proposed development in our territory and how the decisions we make here today will affect others in the other regions,” she says. “It’s a really good opportunity for all of us leaders to come together and talk about how we’re going to move forward, if we’re going to move forward on shale gas and LNG development in the northeast corner of our territory.” 

Three of the largest gas basins in BC are located in the Fort Nelson First Nation, and it is currently involved in negotiations with the province about oil and gas development revenue sharing. 

“We look at this as a really good opportunity to reset our relationship and to look at how we’re going to move forward on revenue sharing. It’s a very important subject. It’s really important to my people. It isn’t just about jobs and training. Being in the breadbasket of B.C. we really want to ensure that we can instill a future for our future generations.” Gale states.
