Haisla chief Crystal Smith in new video interview
Chief Crystal, a director of our Alliance, was interviewed by host Stuart McNish of Oh Boy Productions in Vancouver. Here are some of the things she discussed:
LNG: careers, not just short-term jobs
Education, training, and ‘sustainable/long-term jobs instead of intense short-term labour opportunities.’ See ideas on this issue in our latest blog.
The First Nations LNG Alliance is a collective of First Nations who are participating in, and supportive of, sustainable and responsible LNG development in BC.
The Alliance is working to:
- Increase positive LNG dialogue in First Nations communities
- Communicate First Nations messages directly to First Nations audiences
- Communicate balanced LNG information
- Provide a venue for pro-development nations to interact, share knowledge and resources
- Discuss environmental issues and priorities
Ultimately, the Alliance has been formed to provide education and information to nations around our province as they consider economic and resource development opportunities when it concerns LNG projects in their territories.
To act as an advocate on behalf of First Nations. In order to do this we provide research and in-depth insight into the many issues and concerns surrounding LNG development in BC. We also seek to connect people with resources, information, support and materials to inform themselves and their members.
