Just recently, a group of Indigenous community leaders who support LNG development penned an open letter to the BC government, asking them to support Indigenous economic development through Canada’s low-emission natural gas export industry.
Supporting Indigenous-led development of liquified natural gas is a win for Canada and a win for the planet.
Natural gas is a critical part of lowering global emissions and is a solution for a better future at home.
When natural gas is used to power and heat our homes, businesses and communities - it emits far fewer greenhouse gases than other energy sources. That’s why the European Union formally endorsed LNG as a green energy source.
As the world continues to look for access to responsibly produced energy, Canada’s Indigenous communities should be given the opportunity to participate in the green jobs that natural gas can and will create.
As long as the world needs natural gas, it should be coming from Canadians. Our Indigenous communities should be included in that opportunity.
