Gitxsan chiefs add fourth lawsuit opposing Pacific Northwest LNG
Inland B.C. hereditary First Nations chiefs joined coastal ones in announcing a fourth federal lawsuit against Ottawa’s approval of the Pacific Northwest LNG project, at a press conference in Vancouver. They claim that the gas export terminal is an infringement of their Aboriginal fishing rights.
Two Gitxsan Nation hereditary chiefs—Charlie Wright with the Luutkudziiwus house group, and Yvonne Lattie with the Gwininitxw house group —filed the judicial review on Tuesday morning.
