FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Canadian Government has announced that the Petronas LNG NorthWest LNG project has been approved, despite opposition to the project.

There are conditions that go along with the projects approval.

Environment Minister Catherine McKenna, Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr and Fisheries Minister Dominic LeBlanc made their way to BC after a cabinet meeting on Tuesday morning to make the announcement in Richmond.

The government originally had until October 2nd to approve the project, but made the announcement 5 days before the deadline.

The $36 billion dollar project is Justin Trudeau and the Liberals first big energy project decision. Petronas will still have final say on whether the project goes forward. No major natural-gas projects have gone ahead in British Columbia because of regulatory delays and low prices.

The project was strongly supported by Christy Clark and British Columbia’s provincial government, but local indigenous groups have been hesitant with concerns about its impact on salmon habitat.

More to come.
