The Globe and Mail: First Nation’s LNG aspiration being snubbed by province

Chief Harry Deneron of the Acho Dene Koe, which holds 750 members, says he’s frustrated that the Nation continues to be ignored by the province, and says while he’s not against fracking or pipelines, the issue may end up in court if his community isn’t going to benefit from job creations.

The Acho Dene Koe’s traditional lands were divided up in the 1950’s, and today, while some continue to live in B.C., many rest on the borders of Yukon and the Northwest Territories.

This is what Aboriginal Relations Minister John Rustand says is holding back any sort of agreement, going on record to say he has to be selective in where to invest, with a preference for B.C.-based First Nations, according to the Globe.

The provincial government most recently celebrated the success of an agreement with the Nisga’a First Nation in allowing a natural gas pipeline through their land to reach proposed LNG plants on the coast.
