LNG cost outweighs benefit to B.C.

With Site C & LNG, the NDP is now prepared to give away more enticing deals than Christy Clark ever offered to LNG companies… and that is saying something. Royalties are already among the lowest in the world. Three countries in Africa, inluding war-torn Nigeria and Ivory Coast, collect more than Canada.

A real colony. Worse than Alberta, with the oil heritage fund almost gone and the government already $50 billion in debt and headed for $90 billion in debt. Meanwhile Norway’s oil heritage fund sails on past the trillion dollar mark.

There goes the formerly beautiful B.C., soon to be fracked and all our relatively clean natural gas gone.

LNG isn’t worth it.
