FORT ST JOHN, BC – Bob Zimmer, Member of Parliament for Prince George-Peace River-Northern Rockies, issued the following statement regarding the recent announcement of relief from tariffs for Woodfibre LNG and LNG Canada
“I’m very pleased to hear that efforts on behalf of these projects have been rewarded. This is crucial for local and national economies and will also be a major benefit to local Indigenous communities. I have been supportive of these projects since they were first announced and have helped to champion them in Ottawa. I’m glad that our efforts to push back against these tariffs have not been in vain.
“The decision to give these projects relief from tariffs is a welcome one, especially in a province that has already been so negatively impacted by mill closures, wildfires and the economic choices made by these Liberal and NDP governments.
“Congratulations to everyone at Woodfibre LNG and LNG Canada who have worked so tirelessly in making sure that these projects progress and we get the cleanest liquefied natural gas in the world to global markets.”
