In May 2015, the Lax Kw'alaams First Nation unanimously voted against the Pacific NorthWest liquified fracked gas plant proposed for Lelu Island in the Skeena River estuary, near Prince Rupert, British Columbia. The $11-billion facility would cause significant damage to Flora Bank, a rare and sandy eelgrass bed adjacent to Lelu that is vital habitat for the second largest salmon run in Canada, and would impact the Skeena salmon commercial and sport fisheries which generate more than $110 million for the region every year. Northern BC First Nations leaders, environmental organizations, scientists, businesses, unions, university groups, and faith groups from across the province are all working together to oppose this project.
This webinar is part of the Canadian Freshwater Alliance's "Fresh Ideas" series which highlights success stories and innovative ideas in freshwater protection and advocacy across the country. Hosted with the Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition.
