LNG Alliance comments on benefits group

BC LNG Alliance says it is more than willing to hear from the Northwest Resource Benefits Alliance

While the provincial government may not yet be ready to sit down and talk with the Northwest Resource Benefits Alliance, citing a lack of revenue from industrial development coming into provincial coffers at the moment, BC LNG Alliance says it is more than willing to hear from the group.

“While the BC LNG Alliance has not met representatives of the Northwest Benefits Resource Alliance, we are open to listening to the concerns of local communities and participating in meaningful dialogue,” said the group in a statement.

The Northwest Resource Benefits Alliance represents 21 municipal governments and regional districts seeking to create a revenue sharing agreement with province, while the BC LNG Alliance represents six companies proposing to construct LNG export terminals, including Pacific NorthWest LNG, BG Canada and Exxon Mobil on the North Coast.
