Shell is plowing ahead with plans to build the second phase of its LNG Canada project in B.C. – and now wants taxpayer money to fund it. 🙈
As it stands, LNG Canada would already be one of the most polluting projects in Canada. But to make matters worse, LNG Canada recently announced that it’s abandoning plans to power its terminal with electricity, and instead will revert to using fossil fuels. Powering LNG Canada with fossil fuels would more than double the emissions from the terminal itself and make it impossible for B.C. to meet its 2030 climate target.
This is the leverage Shell is using to bully the B.C. and federal governments into coughing up the cash to pay for its electrification – and there’s a precedent: The provincial and federal governments already subsidized the first phase of this project. We can’t let that happen again.
