Karen Ogen-Toews: Indigenous economic reconciliation and oil and gas in a post-COVID world
Play • 28 min

Karen Ogen-Toews is CEO for the First Nations LNG Alliance and a council member for the Wet'suwet'en First Nation.

She chats with Energy Examined host Tracy Larsson about how First Nations have been dealing with the COVID crisis, and the lifeline that major energy projects like Coastal GasLink and LNG Canada are providing to keep members of her and neighbouring communities employed. She also talks about the need to educate Canadians about how many Indigenous groups support safe pipelines and sustainable energy projects as a means to economic reconciliation—through meaningful consultation, community investments and real partnership opportunities with affected First Nations.
