Camp Madii Lii is located at the entrance to Luutkudziiwus territory within the Gitxsan Nation. On Aug. 26, 2014, access to the territory was closed to all LNG traffic and other unauthorized industrial activity, and the Luutkudziiwus Territorial Management Plan was enacted.
TransCanada is proposing construction and operation of the Prince Rupert Gas Transmission (PRGT) pipeline project. The proposed PRGT will cross Luutkudziiwus territory for about 32 km from Suskwa Pass to the Shegunia River. Approximately one-half -- 16 km -- lies on top of the Babine Trail, the ancestral grease trail connecting Gitanmaax with Fort Babine.
