“Liquefied natural gas is the industry that will make British Columbia debt free,” says B.C. Liberal Leader Christy Clark.
“We have a plan to export natural gas at five times the price of what we can get here in North America.”
The site has been prepped on the first of five promised LNG plants in northern B.C. where the gas will be extracted, chilled into liquid form and shipped to Asia, where there’s a thirst for LNG after the 2011 earthquake in Japan, which sidelined all but two of the country’s 52 nuclear reactors.
“Their hunger for the cleanest fossil fuel on the planet is almost unlimited,” Clark said earlier this month while on a campaign stop in Dawson Creek.
“The Japanese have now decided they need to move away from oil indexation as the pricing basis for their LNG imports and the government has issued instruction to that effect, which in Japan is a very powerful factor,” he said.
B.C. has major LNG competitors in Qatar, East Africa and Australia.
Too much gas for too few customers, ...100 million tonnes of new LNG supply(already under construction or near completion) about to hit the market....
Looks folks....Where is Vaughn Palmer...where is Keith Baldrey..Where is Postmedia....
This LNG thingy wouldn't be a big deal, or an important issue for British Columbia if....
If Christy Clark and her BC Liberal Government didn't promise a $100 billion dollar prosperity fund....the elimination of the B.C.'s growing debt..elimination of crown corporation debt, .the elimination of our sales tax..monies for northern communities, monies for First Nations, money for healthcare and education....
And a 100,000 new high-paying LNG jobs...
if, if Christy Clark didn't promise all that during the 2013 provincial election LNG wouldn't be a B.C. issue...but she did, all the BC Liberals did..
So..Where are you Postmedia..where are you Vaughn Palmer...Where are you Michael Smyth..Where are you Keith Baldrey....Nevermind..
