LNG in BC: “If we can pull this thing off!”

This morning we attended the LNG in BC: Opportunities and Challenges session at the Union of British Columbia Municipalities convention in Whistler, BC. The session should have been called LNG in BC: If we can we pull this thing off!”

The presenters highlighted the opportunity presented by the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) industry in British Columbia, but it lacked the balance needed to provide a fair analysis of what is really going on in the B.C. gas fields.

2 hours and 40 minutes later, Chief Councillor Ross is the second-to-last presenter and the first person to even mention the word "emissions" in this presentation on LNG in BC.
