Support for responsible development in northern B.C. remains strong. Kitselas First Nation and McLeod Lake Indian Band have signed project agreements with Coastal GasLink, demonstrating that Aboriginal communities do not have to choose between economics, culture, environment and a traditional way of life. In turn, TransCanada has their support to build projects like Coastal GasLink, respecting the environment, traditional and cultural resources, while providing community benefits.
“We look forward to continuing our relationship with the Coastal GasLink team. We believe that meaningful participation can work to the benefit of our members and the project, and that we can achieve balance with protecting our environment,” said Chief Joe Bevan, Kitselas First Nation.
