Friday, January 17, 2014

Dakelh Territory, Prince George, B.C. – The Carrier Sekani Tribal Council (CSTC) is disappointed to learn that no one will be accountable for the explosion in 2012 that killed Lake Babine First Nation member Carl Charlie and Stellat’en First Nation member Robert Luggi Jr. (Stellat’en is a member of the CSTC).  The two victims were among many other workers who suffered injuries at the Babine Forest Products Sawmill accident that was deemed preventable by WorkSafe BC.  On January 10, BC Crown Counsel released its Clear Statement that no charges will be approved against Babine Forest Products (BFP).  After a two year investigation the families of those who lost loved ones, or were injured, while on the job, are left wondering if there will be any justice and assurances that such an accident will never happen again.

Listen up: A First Nations message for the oil patch »

Wednesday, December 4, 2013

t a business conference in the Alberta Rockies last week, some of Canada’s heaviest hitters in energy offered their renditions of essentially the same tune. Market access was the topic, and the consensus among the premiers of Alberta and New Brunswick as well as bosses at the largest pipeline and oil companies was that we as a nation should have it. That means oil flowing to where it will fetch its highest price, whether that means the coasts of the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico or Pacific. The result: jobs and a stronger economy across the country. A key reason for snags, they agreed, is opponents have swayed some of the public against their well-backed-up assertions that the oil sands are being developed responsibly, and the industry is bringing all available technology to bear in cutting carbon emissions and transporting the stuff safely.
