Question of the Week | Dec. 19

Do you agree with council’s motion to support Top Speed Energy’s micro-LNG facility?


BACKGROUND:

After Anne Hill of North West Watch presented to council on the advocacy group’s concerns regarding Chinese LNG distributor Top Speed Energy’s proposal to build a micro-facility at the Skeena Industrial Development Park, Coun. James Cordeiro brought forward a controversial motion to council chambers.

The motion was for council to reiterate its support to develop industry at the industrial park, and that they support the Qinhuangdao Economic and Technological Development Zone’s (QETDZ) vision for manufacturing product there.

The motion passed with four in favour and three opposed, but not before Coun. Sean Bujtas questioned whether or not it was necessary.

During the question period, long-time resident and angling advocate Jim Culp went to the podium to express his disappointment with Coun. Cordeiro’s motion to reiterate the city’s support for Skeena LNG.

“This project will have an impact on climate change, like it or not. And if you’re not prepared to address it, it’s going to turn into a nasty battle in this community,” Culp says.
