As recent as two days ago, Annita McPhee was instrumental in helping to protect the Klappan area of British Columbia from a natural gas exploration project. The Klappan area has been identified by the Tahltan Nation as having significant cultural, spiritual, and social values.

The Klappan is one of the most sacred and important areas for our people. It is a place of tremendous cultural, spiritual, historic and social importance. Our people do not want to see it developed, and we look forward to working with B.C. on achieving permanent protection of the Klappan,” Tahltan Central Council president Annita McPhee.
