Report finds climate gaps in proposed B.C. LNG project – Canada’s National Observer

April 9th 2024

A First Nation in northern British Columbia has released a report that pokes holes in climate claims about a proposed LNG project and adjacent pipeline led by the Nisga’a and their industry partners.

The report was commissioned by the hereditary chiefs of Gitanyow, a neighbouring nation. Titled, “Ksi Lisims LNG and Associated Development: Review of Climate Impacts,” it was written by Chris Joseph, an impact assessment specialist from Swift Creek Consulting.

The Gitanyow, who are locked in a legal land dispute with the Nisga’a, are critical of the Ksi Lisims LNG development. They are worried about overall climate concerns and regional impacts on Gitanyow salmon.

The report criticizes the narrow scope of the project’s environmental assessment, saying it underestimates climate impacts.

For the Nisga’a, however, the development promises prosperity and development now and for future generations. Canada’s National Observer reached out to Ksi Lisims LNG for comment and did not hear back by the time of publication.
