Lach Klan is a small village on the north coast of British Columbia. The Gitxaała people, who maintain a strong culture, who fish and harvest along their coast line, and who are fiercely committed to protecting their environment, have everything to lose in the event of an environmental disaster along the coast.
The proposed Enbridge pipeline brings near certain risk of contaminating streams and rivers along its route from the Alberta tar sands. The proposed port in Kitimat, where supertankers bloated with bitumen will navigate the fourth most dangerous body of water in the world, puts the entire coastline at risk.

Some First Nations consider how decisions made today will impact their people in seven generations. Stand up and fight for our future generations. It is NOT worth the risk!
