So what is the LNG Motion at the People’s Assembly all about?
At the People’s Assembly, Huu-ay-aht citizens will be asked if they support leasing the Sarita land to Steelhead LNG for no more than 35 years for the proposed Project. While the lifespan of the project could go beyond 35 years, the renewal of the lease beyond this time would require another vote at a People’s Assembly.
PURPOSE OF THE VOTE:
- To decide whether Huu-ay-aht citizens are in favour of learning more about the proposed Project, by conducting environmental, traditional use and technical studies, over the months and years to come.
- To vote on whether the lands, which will become Treaty Settlement Lands (TSL), should be leased to the Project in order to conduct these studies and possibly construct and operate the LNG facility.
