Description: In 2014, the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society – BC Chapter (CPAWS-BC) outlined the potential impacts of proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) pipelines in northern B.C. on wilderness values in a report titled “Gas Gone Wild – LNG in BC: Impacts on Parks, Wilderness & Wildlife”. The report focuses on the potential impacts of five proposed pipelines as identified by the provincial government. Main findings include: clearing of entirely new right-of-ways, fragmentation of habitat including grizzly bear populations, opening up of provincial parks to development, and additional effects on parks and protected areas.
Key Words: impacts, LNG, northern BC, wilderness, wildlife, provincial government
