Statement by MP Zimmer Regarding CEAA Ruling for Pacific NorthWest LNG

DAWSON CREEK – Bob Zimmer, Member of Parliament for Prince George-Peace River-Northern Rockies, made the following statement regarding the ruling by the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency on the Petronas-led Pacific NorthWest LNG project:

“This is the environmental assessment that many of us in Northeastern BC have been waiting for. I am pleased to see that the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency’s draft report concludes that this important project could avoid significant environmental effects.

“I trust that the Prime Minister and his Cabinet will do the right thing and approve Pacific NorthWest LNG as this project will help dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions in China’s industrial sector, making LNG good for British Columbia, Canada, and the globe.”

The environmental assessment report will be finalized following a 30-day public comment period, which ends March 11, 2016.
