    I guess there's gas all over the place in northern BC.

    It'd probably help matters if the First Nations were united against gas development - rather than trying to cash in on the gravy train:

    BC Government inks LNG framework agreement with Haisla First Nation

    (not that you can blame them, I suppose . . .).

      involving one small tribe in Kitimat. The pipeline bringing the natural gas into Kitimat is a different story. The majority of First Nations opposed the pipeline.

      The government and the fossil fuel industry have lobbyists who go into every small First Nations village to offer them rewards, like new buildings, a 10% share in the profits, jobs. Sometimes it works.
