Federal, provincial and municipal leaders revealed at a Vancouver press conference the approval of a LNG pipeline. The project calls for a liquid natural gas pipeline from Dawson Creek to a processing plant to be built in Kitimat.
The $40 billion project is estimated by the BC Ministries of Finance and Environment to generate $22 billion over the next 40 years.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau repeatedly called the pipeline “the single largest private sector investment in the history of Canada.”
The enthusiasm is shared by Dawson Creek Mayor Dale Bumstead.
