Vancouver, BC – David Keane, President of the BC LNG Alliance, today made the following statement in response to the federal government’s capital cost allowance announcement.

“Today’s announcement by the federal government encourages the development of a robust LNG industry in British Columbia. Developing BC’s LNG industry will create thousands of new jobs for Canadians, jobs that will last for generations to come and guarantee the investment of tens of billions of dollars into Canada’s economy. The BC LNG Alliance and its members will continue to work with First Nations and stakeholders to ensure there are policies and programs in place that enable our industry to reach its full potential.”
