New associations of developers and names keep sprouting such as; The Northwest Corridor Development Corporation (NCDC) [ ] and the Asia Pacific Gateway.   The economic opportunities are endless. The only thing standing in the way is the Indians.

There are literally billions, likely trillions of dollar of revenue to be earned from the region.   Just the investment alone into 6 proposed projects is over 10 billon dollars.   Gold mines, coal mines, pipelines, transmission lines and power generation plants. It is the Sacred Circle, the world's largest, most prosperous region, traders want to come and exploit.

It was during his tenure that he ordered the rail line be removed from accessing their territory. The last insult?   Just after he passed away, not even a month had transpired, the Kitsumkalum Band allowed the tracks to be reinstalled.
