NEBC Resource Municipalities Coalition reaffirms support for LNG ahead of forum next month

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The Northeast BC Resource Municipalities Coalition said in a release that it is reaffirming its support for the development of an LNG Industry in BC ahead of a forum next month.

The Coalition announced Friday that it will be hosting a forum on LNG in Northeast B.C. on February 28th. The upcoming forum follows the Premier’s BC Natural Resources Forum in Prince George in mid-January, where Fort St. John Mayor Lori Ackerman and Dawson Creek Mayor Dale Bumstead were joined by dozens of attendees calling on the provincial and federal governments to develop an LNG industry.

“Last week at the BC Natural Resources Forum in Prince George, delegates filled the stage in a show of support for LNG development in BC,” said Mayor Ackerman in a statement. “Those present understand how resources are extracted and produced safely each and every day. BC was built by our strong resource industries; they built our communities. Northeast BC residents have been producing and delivering NG safely for decades. We need provincial politicians that are pro-community.”

The NEBC Resource Municipalities Coalition was formed in 2014 by the municipalities of Fort St. John, Dawson Creek, Chetwynd, Taylor, Fort Nelson, Pouce Coupe, and Tumbler Ridge. Pouce Coupe, Chetwynd, and Dawson Creek have since left the organization, while several other local organizations have since joined.

The Coalition’s Executive Director Colin Griffith said that the Coalition will have more information on the forum’s programs and registration information available early next month.
