‘Sickening” – First Nations Screwed By Environmentalists

I feel sad for British Columbia (my home province). When I was growing up getting a job on megaproject was great thing to do.

Now British Columbians are relying on a superheated real estate market for ‘wealth’ as energy projects are getting cancelled.

First Nation are losing out too.

“Opponents of energy projects may get attention and results by organizing protests, launching lawsuits, discrediting regulators and influencing governments, but Ross said scores of pro-energy development First Nations groups are worried about losing once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.

Those groups have signed benefits agreements involving cash, jobs and business prospects with projects such as Pacific NorthWest LNG, Trans Mountain’s pipeline expansion, Eagle Spirit Energy Holdings Ltd.’s upgraded oil pipeline, as well as others that have been spiked or delayed by various governments.”
