TFN votes against LNG concept
The Tsawwassen First Nation members voted against the proposed LNG export facility on its lands in British Columbia.
74 members voted against the concept developed by a joint venture that includes FortisBC LNG Development while 65 votes were in favour, TFN said in a statement on Thursday.
The concept revealed by Tsawwassen First Nation chief Bryce Williams in November was for a facility that would produce three to five million tonnes of LNG annually.
Williams said that as a result of the vote, the First Nation will not pursue any additional discussion regarding the proposed LNG concept.
