MP Zimmer Pleased with AltaGas Announcement

OTTAWA – Bob Zimmer, Member of Parliament for Prince George-Peace River-Northern Rockies and Official Critic for the Asia Pacific Gateway and Corridor Initiative is pleased that AltaGas Ltd. has recently committed to build what is expected to be the first propane export terminal on the west coast.

“This is great news for Fort St. John as the North Pine facility that is currently under construction will be providing propane and other natural gas liquids that will be exported, said Mr. Zimmer. “Our natural resource exports are key to a healthy economy and it’s important that they get to market in a timely manner, we need to be competitive in this global market and this is a step in the right direction.”

The Ridley Export Terminal will lease a section of land from the Prince Rupert Port Authority and will be an important link between Western Canada and Asian markets.
