This Week – Podcast Episode 28

Is LPG the new LNG? Read through the news with Tyler and Kim on what is happening in Prince Rupert this week on the podcast.





Breaking news, the city is working on monetizing Watson Island once again, but this time with a liquefied petroleum gas export terminal.

Tyler Portelance and Kim Godfrey scan the headlines on LPG (not LNG), tax increases, Vimy Ridge, a bankrupt gold mine company being handed 35 charges for polluting, and results from the recent half-marathon race in Prince Rupert.

Our three guests are Blair Mirau, city councillor who is championing for small businesses, as well as Kate Toye and Steve Robin of the Prince Rupert Gymnastics Association who discuss how the club has grown in the past couple years and all the new equipment they have to train with.
