In late August, an Aboriginal protest group with the Gitxsan tribe in northern B.C. constructed a permanent camp in their territory to oppose LNG pipelines that they say do not have their hereditary chiefs’ approval. They call it “Camp Madii Lii” and their members block all “LNG traffic and other unauthorized industrial activity.” TransCanada is proposing the $5-billion Prince Rupert Gas Transmission pipeline, to transport fracked gas from the northeast to B.C.’s coast.
What follows is an op/ed from the leaders of this camp.
