The public has heard many promises about the economic benefits of a proposed LNG (liquefied natural gas) industry powered by fracking in northeast B.C. Increasingly, questions are being asked about the credibility of these claims and the environmental impacts of fracking, pipelines, LNG export plants and supertankers. There are up to 18 LNG export terminals being proposed for the B.C. coast – including projects close to home in Delta and Squamish. You are invited to a discussion of the ramifications of LNG development and fracking on B.C.’s energy future.
