For the record

The Metlakatla First Nation does not have a benefit agreement signed with Pacific NorthWest LNG for the proposed Lelu Island project

Re: Tree-spikers cling to Lelu Island (B.C. Views, July 20).

The Metlakatla First Nation does not have a benefit agreement signed with Pacific NorthWest LNG for the proposed Lelu Island project.

Unfortunately, factually incorrect information was published in several Black Press newspapers across the province, stating that “The Metlakatla, Kitselas, Kitsumkalum and Gitxaala bands have benefit agreements for the project.”

There is a term sheet signed that could lead to an impact benefit agreement in the future, but to state that a benefits agreement has been signed is simply not true.

While I appreciate the effort made to correct this error online, I hope Mr. Fletcher is more diligent in ensuring his opinions report only established facts in the future.
