This is our generation’s opportunity to create an industry for BC: LNG Alliance
An opinion piece by Bryan Cox, president and CEO of BC LNG Alliance, says our generation could build a new natural resource industry in B.C. from the ground up.
By cooling B.C. natural gas until it becomes a liquid, we can add value to our resource before exporting it as liquefied natural gas (LNG). We are the generation that learned to reduce, reuse and recycle, and to be conscious of the state of our environment. We were raised to care about our planet. LNG is our generation’s opportunity to build a modern industry that provides the world with a resource it needs, with the fewest emissions possible. We have the knowledge and values to build a sustainable resource that benefits all British Columbians.
Through consultation, the Haisla Nation negotiated benefit agreements to allow the LNG Canada project and Kitimat LNG project in their traditional territory. We have a huge opportunity to build an industry our way, benefitting British Columbians, Canadians and the world. With LNG, our generation can help build sustainable prosperity for B.C.
