A Mi’kmaw band is deciding whether or not to accept a deal with a company building a controversial project.

Alton Gas is planning to store natural gas in underground salt caverns.

Mi’maq have fought the project over environmental concerns.

And some say the deal on the table won’t stop future protests.
