Francois Depey writes to tell us of this event:

The Office of the Wet'suwet'en Hereditary Chiefs invite you to participate in an All Nations Energy Summit.  All Nations addressing current energy issues including Enbridge Northern Gateway Project and the need for planning a sustainable energy future. 

ALL Nations Energy Summit
Date: June 6th 2009
Location: Moricetown Multiplex - 32 KM West of Smithers, BC

“INFORM & INSPIRE”

Keynote speakers and panelists representing all aspects of the
Northern Gateway pipeline, tanker traffic, and Alberta tar sands will
provide information to the public throughout the day to:

  • INFORM our Nations and northern communities of the potential environmental, legal, cultural and socio-economic, and cumulative impacts of proposed energy projects; look at sustainable energy options for the north and,
  • INSPIRE our Nations on asserting our rights, title and interests that would best represent our traditions, history and culture, ensuring that we are not accepting economics over impacts.

 

WE HAVE TOO MUCH TO LOSE.

“Empower First Nations right to free, prior and informed consent on developments that would impact our Rights, Title and interest on unceded lands.”

OUTCOMES:

  • Nation-to-Nation discussions addressing: “Inadequacies of environmental review processes, renewed call for independent panel, or parallel First Nation major project review process”.
  • Reiteration of the moratorium on tanker traffic.
  • Call for Moratorium on further tar sands expansion.
  • Drafting collective resolution for First Nations Leaders to sign.
  • All Nations addressing current energy issues including Enbridge Northern Gateway Project and the need for planning a sustainable energy future.

Agenda for the event will be forthcoming.
