PRINCE GEORGE – A BC Environmental assessment certificate has been cleared for Cedar LNG, which is Haisla majority owned partnership with Pembina Pipelines.
And as we experienced with the TransCanada and LNG Canada projects, the impacts are far-reaching. In a statement, the Province noted: “If B.C. is serious about fighting climate change and improving affordability for British Columbians, the best tool in our toolbox is the export of cleaner LNG. We are optimistic that the Haisla Nation’s legacy will unlock more Indigenous-led LNG projects in B.C. LNG exported from B.C.’s facilities, including Cedar LNG, will help end Asia’s reliance on coal-fired power plants, drastically improving air quality for billions of people.”
That Environmental Assessment approval comes on the heels of the EA approval of the Blackwater Mine south of Vanderhoof. Other projects that have kept the Prince George economy in the black are the Coastal Gas Link project and Site C.
