Development Halted in the Sacred Headwaters
Good news coming from British Columbia, Canada! After a decade of fighting, all major development has halted in the Sacred Headwaters, making time for all involved to settle on a long-term solution, for this area of great importance to many. The Province (through British Columbia Railway Company) has purchased 61 coal licenses in the Klappan and Sacred Headwaters to stop development in the area. The Klappan is a critically important area of for the Tahltan First Nation. It’s part of their territory that needs long-term management and protection to preserve cultural and ecological values. Mount Klappan, which is part of the Sacred Headwaters, is a traditional hunting ground and has significant cultural value. It also feeds three of BC’s major salmon-bearing rivers – the Skeena, Stikine and Nass. Read more on this important development here.
