FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — A new video series from the BC LNG Alliance features residents from Fort St. John, including Mayor Lori Ackerman.
The series, called ‘What I Know’, is made up of 15-second TV spot style videos featuring residents from across northern B.C., and figures from the oil and gas industry.
“LNG is an opportunity for the province of British Columbia, it’s going to offer jobs for generations to come,” Mayor Ackerman says in the clip. “We’re looking at a 40-year industry — LNG will definitely provide a future for our youth.”
In another video, she says, “LNG is not only going to bring jobs, good, secure jobs. But also revenue to the province to make sure our education system and our health system are secure.”
The third video features a resident named Lyle, who says LNG is ‘right for British Columbia.’
‘The sustainable, long-term promise of LNG is really what we need as an engine to drive our province forward into the future,” he concludes.
In a video posted at the beginning of March, Lynette Kitt says her family loves the lifestyle of living in rural B.C.
“I believe LNG is good for Fort St. John because it brings economic diversification to our region.”
The ‘What I Know’ videos were posted to YouTube on April 4.
