When B.C. Premier Christy Clark outlined her five conditions last month for possibly approving the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline, her demand for a "fair share" of Alberta's petro-royalities brought howls and screams of outrage from east of the Rockies.

Not only have hundreds of thousands of manufacturing jobs been lost over the past few years, Canada has also been missing out on opportunities to join the boom in production of renewable-energy technology.

My community that lives in the Kitimat Village's decision to support natural gas development and oppose a tar sands pipeline is a considered and informed. It is consistent with our ancestral responsibilities as First Nations who have never surrendered title to these lands.
