Lax Kw’alaams not negotiating with PNW LNG

As members of the band and supporters continue to occupy Lelu Island, the Lax Kw’alaams Band released a statement

As members of the band and supporters continue to occupy Lelu Island, the Lax Kw’alaams Band released a statement saying it is not having any discussions or negotiations with Pacific NorthWest LNG.

As well, the memo from the band says that the current activity on the island is “a legitimate activity that is supported by many in the community”. To that end, the band is calling for united voice against the project.

“This is not the time to be divided, but rather to be united so we can make sure industry understands our traditional law. Our traditional laws require that we protect our fisheries, our environment and our people for future generations. Lax Kw’alaams cannot make a decision that adversely affects our resources,” read the statement released by the band.

“What we need now is community solidarity in the face of external pressure from government and industry.”
