What is the Worst Case Scenario
If no new activities are launched on the property the hope for new jobs and expanded opportunities would vanish. However, this may not be the worst case scenario.
A worst case scenario could occur if the community launched a few major activities that failed. If a large project failed then financial losses could also reduce future financial gains and the creation of new jobs expected by Band Members.
Future financial gains might be needed to pay deficits created by failed or poorly performing projects. Project failures could also erode the Band's credibility with funding agents and the Band could be found liable as partners in development if the Band actively attempts to manage the leases, which is the responsibility delegated to the Bekanon Limited Partnership.
In addition, even though prudent measures have been adopted for protection, environmental damage to the lands is always a risk.
