CHN PRESS RELEASE: ACCUMULATING IMPACTS: HAIDA HAVE GOOD REASON TO OPPOSE LNG & ENB MEGAPROJECTS

The Council of the Haida Nation have made available a press release detailing the strategies LNG and Pipeline companies use to pursue ‘social license.’  On their own position, the CHN states:

“There are many good reasons to oppose these projects and few to support them. The perceived

benefits in no way trump what we know we will lose. Our Nation has done its due diligence; we have spoken

to BC and Canada, we have looked at the environmental, social and legal impacts of these projects and are not

convinced that shipping LNG or oil from the west coast is a good idea. These projects will further pollute the

Earth and no good will come of them.”

Those of us who have fished this coast and enjoyed its wealth know that this project will cause immeasurable damage to our ocean and quality of life. Continue reading
