We know there’s more to building a pipeline than just materials and construction. The success of Coastal GasLink relies on working with local communities, listening to their views, incorporating their feedback where possible, and caring for sensitive landscapes and culturally and historically significant places. First Nations communities do not have to choose between economics, culture, environment and a traditional way of life. By meeting and talking with them, we’re able to address their questions and concerns, and incorporate their local and traditional knowledge.
TC Energy and Coastal GasLink have been exceptional in the way they deal with First Nations people. They really listen and I think they care, and they’re willing to incorporate the needs and concerns of local Indigenous people into their project planning and strategy.”
