LNG carriers arriving and departing from the LNG facilities would force local waterways to close to marine traffic, sometimes for hours at a time. For communities reliant on marine waters for fishing and recreation, limited access is a real concern.
In 1973, a superport was proposed for the Skeena Estuary and rejected due to a study that concluded, “The construction of a superport at the Kitson Island - Flora Bank site would destroy the salmon habitat."
First Nations and communities along the Skeena were not consulted with Petronas' LNG plant proposed for Lelu Island. The impacts of this project would be far-reaching and long lasting. Sign the declaration today to help protect Skeena salmon.
