LNG subsidiary files for injunction against Unist’ot’en Camp
The Kitimat LNG project at Bish Cove, Douglas Channel, south of Kitimat, B.C. A subsidiary energy company that would deliver natural gas to LNG Canada’s Kitimat plant has filed an application for an injunction against the Unist’ot’en Camp, south of Houston, B.C.
Coastal Gaslink, a subsidiary of Transcanada Pipelines Ltd., filed an application for an injunction on Friday to gain access to the Morice River Bridge, which it claims is
being blockaded by the Unist’ot’en Camp and stalling construction on the project.
The Coastal Gaslink pipeline would deliver natural gas, starting in an area close to Dawson Creek, all the way to the proposed LNG Canada facility in Kitimat.
The Unist’ot’en Camp was constructed in 2010 to assert and “reoccupy” the land of the Wet’suwet’en people, on which several proposed pipelines would be constructed.
If Coastal Gaslink’s application is granted, the injunction would prohibit anyone from “physically preventing, impeding or restricting” access to the Morice River Bridge or the Morice West Forest Service Road.
