After months of waiting, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA) has released the report that could determine the fate of one of the world’s largest salmon runs. Petronas wants to build an LNG terminal on Lelu Island, beside the eelgrass bed where 88% of the Skeena’s juvenile salmon feed. Though Simon Fraser University reported that the “proposed development in these areas will threaten the fisheries that depend on these fishes,” the newly released draft Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA) study disagrees. Both Environmentalists and First Nations leaders find Lelu Island’s environmental assessment disgusting.
