Gary George is from Northern Central British Columbia and his Nation lies right near the proposed Northern Gateway Pipeline proposed by Enbridge. This area is near Burns Lake, Houston, and Smithers area. The pipeline will cross the Maurice River near the upper part of the Skeena River. These rivers still have Sockeye, Pink and various other wild salmon runs. He is worried that if there is a spill in the river the ecosystem will suffer terribly. He feels that there will be benefit to the community through economic growth, but that the natural state of the Maurice River is too important and fragile, and that the focus should be on protecting the river and its salmon.
