LNG in Victoria? Community Forum Today

Wednesday, Feb. 17th: LNG in Victoria? A Community Forum

February 17, 2016

With a massive liquified natural gas plant proposed for the Saanich Inlet, B.C.'s LNG industry is right on Victoria's doorstep. If approved, the facility will liquify 6 million tonnes of gas every year, filling tankers
passing through the Saanich Inlet every 3-5 days for the next 25 years.

Wed, Feb 17, 7-9 pm
Esquimalt United Church, 500 Admirals Road, Esquimalt.

While Steelhead LNG has already received export licenses to carry out the project, a number of environmental assessments are still pending, and residents have begun to voice their concerns about the risks the project poses.

Dr Eoin Finn, a retired chemist and partner of the major accounting and consulting firm, KPMG, will share his expert research on the safety, climate, ecological and economic impacts of B.C.'s proposed LNG industry, focusing on the Steelhead Malahat project. Updates will also be provided from the The Saanich Inlet Network.

Event sponsored by Sierra Club BC, Dogwood Initiative, The Council of Canadians, The Saanich Inlet Network, The Western Canada Wilderness Committee and Divest Victoria.
