Premier Christy Clark has issued the following statement today on liquefied natural gas (LNG) export licences:
“British Columbia’s vision to become a global leader in clean energy supply is showing greater momentum, with the Government of Canada approving four long-term liquefied natural gas (LNG) export licences.
Our long and safe history of producing natural gas has opened the door to an unprecedented and transformative economic opportunity. Building an LNG industry is part of our long-term plan to grow the economy, and create more opportunities both today and for generations to come.
Stable, responsible economic development takes vision and patience. With seven export licences now approved by the federal government, our plan to foster a competitive LNG industry is showing results.”
