GUNTER: The motivating factors behind our pipeline crisis

The feds could withhold federal approval of LNG until Horgan permits a pipeline to be built across B.C. And since Trans Mountain is the only pipeline still out there … Kinder Morgan, of course, is the one player that truly wants Trans Mountain. But it has signalled it may no longer need it and will walk …

Letter: Northern mayors say future of BC must include LNG

The development of an LNG export industry is a provincial and national imperative. British Columbia’s vast amount of low-carbon natural gas is losing market share and value. This is because our only customer – the United States – has its own shale gas revolution and no longer depends on Canada to …

The Trans Mountain saga as a public policy failure

Indeed, it’s getting harder by the day for those opposed to Trans Mountain for genuinely environmental reasons to believe BC either. The province recently announced tax incentives to attract liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects. Premier John Horgan’s own coalition partner, BC Green Party Leader …

Letters to the Editor (6): Friday, April 12, 2018

LNG in B.C.‘s hinterland is starting to show new life. The Trans Mountain pipeline may not be dead yet. Weaver can only throw barbs at Horgan in the Legislature over misguided and poorly thought out changes to MSP taxes and taxes to address an overheated housing market that is reaching beyond …

This old carpenter’s leaning green

Being a construction worker [retired] and an environmentalist makes it difficult to conclude whether you are in favour or against LNG export. A country or a province has to have some industry and cannot exist with all its workers positioned behind a computer. To quote my dad, “The economy cannot exist …

Letter: Climate change is real and urgent

First came the inexplicable decision to complete Site C, and now defying logic related to meeting B.C.‘s commitment to reducing GHG emissions, your government will continue the Liberals’ plan to develop an LNG industry. Your promised examination of fracking excludes GHG emissions and the public …

Editorial: Hot air driving pipeline protests in BC

As she poignantly noted: “We are the ones that have to live here. We are the ones that have to live with our people’s social issues.” A B.C. LNG industry, not political hot air, can provide those communities with jobs and economic enterprise, both of which are fundamental to improving social and natural …

BC booms

Economically, Prince Rupert hasn’t recovered from the 2004 pulp mill closure, a major employer, and the B.C. government-touted LNG developments haven’t materialized. Prince Rupert’s population has declined to just more than 12,000 in 2016. Sole practitioner Paul Johnston of Johnston Law says: …
