February 13, 2019 | Travels in LNG: Hear firsthand why First Nations are embracing opportunity

Stewart Muir is founder and executive director of the Resource Works Society, a Vancouver-based group open to participation by British Columbians from all walks of life who are concerned about their future economic opportunities. He is an author, journalist and historian with experience on three continents including a financial editor of The Vancouver Sun responsible for mining and markets coverage. Since Resource Works was established in 2014, the group has gained international recognition for its practical approach to the public challenges of responsible natural resource development and use.

HOMELAND JOURNEY: More than 20 First Nations are actively supporting the LNG Canada project. Many of their members are choosing to speak out about their personal views. Meet Diane Lukasser of Kitsumkalum First Nation.

Diane Lukasser, an employment and training counsellor with Kitsumkalum First Nation located near Terrace, B.C., describes the occupational challenges in her region, where she coordinates training First Nations members including finding them LNG-related work. She emphasizes the importance of these jobs and industry being available in order to support these newly trained members.

This video is part of the Homeland Journey project supported by Resource Works.
