LNG tax benefits not specific to any project, Horgan says

Video on Premier John Horgan’s visit to Prince Rupert where he will meet with the mayor on resources

In his first stop on his northwest B.C. tour, Premier John Horgan visited DP World’s Fairview Container Terminal.

“It’s an opportunity for me to be up in the North Coast to take a look at what’s the most fast growing part of the economy, and that of course is the Port of Prince Rupert,” Horgan said at the press conference.

He also addressed the liquefied natural gas (LNG) tax breaks that he introduced March 22.

“It wasn’t specific to any project, it was a framework for those who may want to come and revisit their previous decisions with respect to competitiveness for natural gas exports from the North Coast,” he said.

He said he would also meet with Mayor Lee Brain later in the day about the Resource Benefits Alliance to discuss how “those that live in the communities that have provided so many of the resources to the B.C. economy see some benefits returning over the long term.”

On Tuesday, March 27, Horgan will be announcing support for trades and technology students at the Northwest Community College in Terrace, and then the premier will be in Kitimat to meet with Unifor members.
