Great article from DeSmog Canada on the legal actions to stop the Petronas LNG pipeline. “If we do not have Lelu island, if we do not have the eelgrass, our salmon will not survive. Lelu island is vital in the survival of the salmon and in the survival of the aboriginal people that live on the Skeena,” Chief Yvonne Lattie.

And the Xeni Gwet'in and Yunesit'in must still fight this in court. RAVEN stands with them - you can donate at this link. https://fundraise.raventrust.com/events/campaign-tsilhqotin-nation-save-teztan-biny-fish-lake/e70115 Please share! This is so important. After two federal rejections, we can't be apathetic now.

With one hand, the Trudeau government kills Enbridge's Northern Gateway Pipeline... and with the other slaps everyone with approving Kinder Morgan. Please share this link to help BC First Nations with yet another legal battle to stop a pipeline.
