We’ve said yes to these projects because we have concluded they will be built responsibly for our environment and will allow our people to flourish.
I am the elected chief councillor of the Haisla Nation, and as a First Nations leader in my community I dedicate myself to providing opportunities that benefit my people.
I want First Nations members to have the same quality of life that every other person in Canada has. I want B.C.’s First Nations to be heard and be included in the discussions that impact our territories. I want us and other First Nations to achieve their independence in order to properly and effectively care for the future of our people.
Haisla, and the other 19 elected bands across the Coastal GasLink pipeline route, have concluded that this project meets the requirements that we have as First Nations.
