Prince Rupert Gas Transmission Project being blocked on Gitxsan First Nation

Members claim the Prince Rupert Gas Transmission Project will cross Luutkudziiwus territory for 32 kilometres from Suskwa Pass to the Shegunia River and that approximately one half is on top of the Babine Trail which is the ancestral grease trail connecting Gitanmaax with Fort Babine.

They state the PRGT conflicts with Luutkudziiwus interests and values as there will be negative impacts on animal habitats and cumulative effects on social, cultural, and economic values.

If the pipeline is approved it will deliver natural gas from a point near Hudson Hope to a proposed LNG facility on Lelu Island with the District of Port Edward. The pipeline is approximately 900 kilometres in length.
