Statement by MP Zimmer Regarding the First Shipment of LNG from BC to China

OTTAWA – Bob Zimmer, Member of Parliament for Prince George-Peace River-Northern Rockies issued the following statement regarding the first shipment of LNG from British Columbia to China:

“This is a great day for British Columbia and for Canada, as well as an important step forward for the future of LNG.

“Many British Columbians have waiting many years to see this day come to fruition, and although the industry has a long way to go, this is a great day for all those who have so worked hard to make LNG exports to Asia a reality.

“I look forward to seeing more shipments like this one from our very own facilities in British Columbia.”

LNG was supplied by FortisBC’s Tilbury facility in Delta, logistics and equipment were provided by True North Energy Corporation and CIMC ENRIC Holdings Limited, and the cargo was shipped from Vancouver.
