The start of new project! In the northwest of BC, a small island in proximty to Prince Rupert shall become the place for a big development. The Pacific NorthWest LNG company plans to use Lelu Island to construct their liquefaction plant. LNG, short for liquefied natural gas, is a new technology used to liquefy natural gas in order to ship it to different places of the world. PNW LNG is met by resistance from local First Nations and climate specialists because it threatens local salmon and harbour porpoises and because of its high GHG potential.
I am now in Prince Rupert and on Lelu Island, filming, interviewing and gathering knowledge, in oder to disentangle this highly complex issue!
