People in Kitimat have high hopes for an announcement scheduled by LNG Canada on October 5, followed by an event at a local golf course that will include fireworks. Many expect the energy consortium led by Royal Dutch Shell to finally commit to building a $40-billion natural gas liquefaction and export terminal in the north coast port. If so, it will be the largest capital project in B.C.’s history. This week the federal government reportedly waived tariffs on steel that would have to be imported to undertake the project, one of a few remaining hurdles.
