In Our Opinion: More good news

The long-awaited announcement of Canada’s decision on the fate of the Pacific NorthWest LNG project finally came and it was great news

The long-awaited announcement of Canada’s decision on the fate of the Pacific NorthWest LNG project finally came and it was great news.

Now, we just have to wait and hope this exhaustive and extremely robust socio-economic-environmental-regulatory review hasn’t closed the window of opportunity to bring as much as $11 billion into the economy — our economy.

As well, AltaGas is continuing to edge closer.

They announced a positive final investment decision on their North Pine propane project that will feed the proposed export terminal on Ridley Island last week.

“As we move into the last couple months of the year we expect to hit our financial targets and bring our Ridley Island Propane Export Terminal investment decision to fruition,” David Harris, president and CEO of AltaGas, said.

And then there is the new transload lumber facility, as well as, the shovels in the ground continuing work toward the nearing completion of Phase 2 at DP World’s Fairview Terminal.

Just more good news for Prince Rupert, Northwest B.C., and for that matter, the rest of Canada.
