Some directly affected residents and groups along the proposed expansion route have concerns in regard to the route, timing or construction methods. For instance many residents of Chilliwack are concerned about the risks to the aquifers which supply their drinking water.  Some in Abbotsford are concerned about the close proximity of the expansion route to aggregate mine blasting.

The provincial government views the multiple benefits agreements for Metlakatla and Lax Kw’alaams as a win for both the LNG industry and First Nations reconciliation.

The massive women’s marches of January 21st may mark the beginning of a new wave of militant feminist struggle. But what exactly will be its focus?
