What’s up with Port Alberni’s LNG plans?

All I’m hearing, with reference to LNG development in B.C, is “Prince Rupert," says letter writer.

To the Editor,

All I’m hearing, with reference to LNG development in B.C, is “Prince Rupert”.

What about Port Alberni?

Or is Port Alberni’s planned LNG site on Sarita Bay at the mouth of the Alberni inlet a done deal?

Especially considering that in a modern execution of old-fashioned siege mentality, without adequate forest-fire fighting management to protect Port Alberni’s valuable timber resource, to remain viable the community would  have no other option but to approve LNG development and whatever else the powers-that-be have planned.

I’ve always wondered exactly what Premier Christy Clark meant when she stated that her “government has big plans for the great little city of Port Alberni!” As it’s often said: Guess we’ll be the last to know.

Liz Stonard,
