Liquid ‘Natural’ Gas (LNG) production and export is a major issue that touches all the hot buttons: environment, jobs, money, First Nations, and provincial elections. Recently one north coast BC First Nation began consulting it’s membership regarding a 1.1 billion dollar 40 year deal with a foreign owned export consortium. Much to a great many people’s surprise the community meetings have unanimously voted down the agreement. I had the opportuity to address some of these issues and the bigger question of First Nations and BC’s economic development on BC Almanac on CBC radio.
