Speakers at the counter-summit, ‘LNG Pipedreams: Fractured Futures and Community Resistance’, will include Chief Liz Logan of the Treaty 8 Tribal Association, as well as representatives from the Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition, Common Sense Canadian, My Sea to Sky, Skwomesh Action and the former CAW director for Unifor.
Critics of the pipeline say these islands are adjacent to “the most important critical juvenile salmon habitat in the entire Skeena watershed.”
There are upward of six northern and six southern corridor pipelines proposed to cross northwest British Columbia, connecting the fracked gas fields of the northeast to the proposed LNG terminals and tankers on the coast.
“Gas extraction for LNG has the potential for massive cumulative impacts on a landscape that is already heavily impacted,” Logan said. “there are too many unanswered questions related to the impact of the LNG projects in our territory, and a Regional Strategic Environmental Assessment must be done before any more development takes place.
