Lax Kw’alaams disapprove of Nisga’a’s Ksi Lisims Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) on northern BC coast

As this continued contention regarding the development of West Coast liquefied natural gas goes on, Canada is missing out on a major opportunity. The Panama Canal is currently experiencing its worst drought in 73 years, and shipping in the canal has been reduced from 36 ships a day to 24, and will be further reduced to 18 by Feb. 1. But since no LNG projects have been competed on the BC coast to date, Canada will not be able to take advantage of this opportunity.
