Port of Prince Rupert demands that protestors stop construction work

Published by
LNG Industry,


The Port of Prince Rupert has issued an instruction to protestors on Lelu island to stop construction activities during their unauthorised occupation of the island. Lelu island is the site of the proposed Pacific NorthWest LNG export terminal in British Columbia (B.C.), Canada.

The President and CEO of the Port of Prince Rupert, Don Krusel, said: “We respect the right of any individual or group to express their opinions concerning port development if it is done in a safe and peaceful manner […] However, raising makeshift structures does not meet that definition and has not been authorised.”

The Port has permitted neither the protestors’ occupation, nor the makeshift construction work that they are carrying out on the island. The Port has reserved the right to require that all existing structures on the island be taken down and all of their contents removed from the site.
