LNG Canada, the largest private investment in Canadian history, #Got2Yes. But the Coastal GasLink pipeline, which will feed natural gas from northeast B.C. to the LNG Canada plant in Kitimat is under siege by a rogue group of U.S.-funded professional protestors and a handful of Indigenous dissidents.
Approximately 670 kilometres, the Coastal GasLink pipeline project is an approved pipeline that will safely deliver natural gas across northern B.C. Combined with LNG Canada, the project is a $40-billion investment in British Columbia, adding $7.4 billion annually to Canada’s GDP and generating about 65,000 jobs per year over 30 years. Plus it gets our Asian neighbours off dirty coal and on to much more environmentally-friendly natural gas.
Despite Coastal GasLink signing agreements with every single elected First Nations council along its route, and receiving loud support from the vast majority of B.C.’s Indigenous community, a small group of Wet’suwet’en dissidents, the Unist’ot’en clan (one of five clans making up the Wet’suwet’en), have an illegal protest camp in the pipeline’s path. They have demanded that all work stop on Coastal GasLink, despite government approval and court orders backing the project.
