Lava canals? I think what would happen there is either the lava would harden underneath, eventually overflow the canal, and kill everyone, or it would melt the surronding earth, destroythe canal, and kill everyone.

Lava canals aren't going to work.

Not to mention the whole... Everything would die on the island if it was active on that scale. The very heat of being near the lava can set a person on fire. And no, your super metal alloy won't stop lava from broiling Iga'Vi alive.

Now water canals, perhaps either cut into the slopes and into the cliffs of the island to transport materials out of mines, are very realistic.

... I would say something that notes the smog wouldn't allow them to go outside anyways, but I find reworking the cause would be an extreme hassle...

Ok, nix the lava canals of searing heat and infinite raw materials. Introduce slightly active V with Water canals. I still remember reading somewhere that the capitol is very near the caldera.

Smog? It's not like the Iga'Vi are living in such conditions they can't breath. That would be quickly changed by the public. Sure near the mines and industries some may wear masks but certainly not dying from it. And the volcano if active would only be mildly so, sputtering lava and smoke from a side pore every once in a while. Any truly active volcano would force a "Live miles away" scenario.

Ehem... I said I would not go into that. If you want me too though...

May I remind everyone that volcanoes that erupt can fire debris up to 4 or so miles away on a good day. On a really bad day, a decent sized volcano could easily get a decent sized object a good 26 miles away. A good pyroclastic flow and you can forget any city for 12 or so miles.

The atmosphere effects are as I mention before, acidic, you add pollution (which is the same effect) you get stronger acid. Add this with the elements from spewing smoke from a volcano, you get rather cold conditions with fairly acidic rain. Think Great Britain around the Industrial revolution, except more smoggy. The resulting Rain/Snow, will be highly acidic, of course, it would evap. before it reached the ground. The resulting gas would be like dropping a chlorine tablet into some Bleach, and would be like a yellow tinted fog on Earth.

Now, as I mentioned before we could easily just brush that aside, saying the high speed currents above the clouds prevented that gas from accumulating. As with all books, in order to make something believable, give a good reason people can't test, then back it up with some off the wall answer.

Once again not a very active volcano, we could also say that those effects would be marginalized and that the volcano is more dormant then active.

And your logic is excellent. I manipulative people, as long as they don't manipulate me.
