The future of what could be the largest industrial development in the area falls in the hands of a few hundred people when members of the Huu-ay-aht First Nations vote on a proposed LNG plant this Saturday.

Approximately 400 Huu-ay-aht citizens are eligible to approve or deny the liquified natural gas project at the Best Western Barclay Hotel on Saturday, said Chief Councillor Jeff Cook. Nearly half of those live in the Alberni Valley.

Other members reside in Anacla and Bamfield near the proposed site of the LNG plant in Sarita Bay, located 70 kilometres southwest of Port Alberni.
