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.
