Kwispaa LNG an opportunity for Huu-ay-aht First Nations

 

On Monday, Jan. 8, 2018, representatives from the Kwispaa LNG project team were in Port Alberni council chambers to provide more information about the Kwispaa LNG project. The proposed natural gas liquefaction and export facility was given the go-ahead after a Huu-ay-aht community referendum resulted in a 70 percent vote in favour in March 2017. The positive vote meant that Steelhead LNG, a Canadian company based out of Vancouver, would develop the LNG project through a co-management relationship with the Huu-ay-aht.

“We have the support of our people, we have the support of our hereditary chiefs and we have the support of our council for this project,” said Huu-ay-aht Chief Councillor Robert Dennis Sr.

Re: “Put LNG terminals far from people,” letter, March 25.

While we appreciate the opinions expressed in the letter, it is important to separate opinion from fact.

Natural gas is a safe and versatile energy source that is used every day here on Vancouver Island. Cooling it into a liquid — or LNG — is one of the safest ways to store and transport natural gas abroad to countries that currently rely on energy sources such as coal. In particular, LNG is safe because it is non-toxic, non-corrosive and non-explosive.
