WEMOTACI — The Atikamekw Council of Wemotaci, in Quebec’s Mauricie region, says it has yet to approve a proposed natural underground gas pipeline construction project.

They affirm no agreement has been reached with the company, GNL Québec.

The underground pipeline of 750 km would allow the transportation of natural gas from western Canada through northeastern Ontario to a plant in Quebec’s Saguenay region for export by sea to foreign countries.

On its Facebook page, the Atikamekw Council of Wemotaci stated the consultation phase for the project has only just begun.

It notes eight Indigenous populations would be affected by the pipeline, including that of Wemotaci, located 115 kilometers north-west of La Tuque.
