Ep 36. First Nations LNG Alliance, the LNG Industry and Leadership

Leaders lead by example. So simple yet so often is a neglected value. Burns Lake Band Chief Dan George is one of those leaders who not only holds that value but seems to put it at the forefront. Chief George is also the chairman of the First Nation LNG Alliance and for the last 6 years has not only lead his band in negotiations with governments and companies over LNG pipelines but has used FNLNGA as a way to educate and support the indigenous communities as the LNG industry expands across their territories. This episode of The Crownsmen Podcast explores everything from the LNG industry and LNG pipelines, to First Nations relationship with the LNG industry. We also explore education and developing infrastructure in First Nations communities as well as Chief George’s own professional career.

    For those who don’t really understand what is going on and why there seem to be two different groups saying two different things as far as support of LNG and wanting to protect the land for future generations:
    The industry has been dealing and negotiating with the wrong people; elected C&C only have jurisdiction over reserves as they get their powers from the Indian Act… Traditional territory is the purview of Hereditary Chiefs as per the historic Supreme Court case in 1997 ‘Delgamuukw v British Columbia (Regina)’.
    Therefore, if you want to enter and conduct business on reserves you must get approval from the Band Council BUT if you plan to cross or use unceded traditional territory you MUST get approval from the Herediary Chiefs of that territory.
