The Tsawwassen First Nation has rejected plans to build an LNG export facility just north of the B.C. Ferries terminal.

In a vote on Wednesday night, 53 per cent said ‘no’ to allowing the 32-hectare project on the nation’s traditional land.

“What would you rather have, more money or a better environment?” asked Tsawwassen First Nation member Nic Gurniak. “No need to do more damage to the environment than has already been done.”
