People are scoffing at Christy Clarks vision to use liquid natural gas (LNG) production to pay off our provincial debt and eliminate the provincial sales tax. They say its just a dream.
Well, Alberta did it with oil money, so why cant we do it in B.C. with natural gas money?
Major corporations are spending billions of dollars to develop B.C.s natural gas resources. Theyre willing to invest these billions because they believe in the long term future of this industry.
I believe in it, too; when was the last time you saw major corporations risking billions of dollars developing a resource with no prospect for long term solid success?
Christy Clark has a vision to grow the B.C. economy with LNG, to hire more British Columbians, and eventually pay off our provincial debt and eliminate the provincial sales tax.
Its a darn good vision and a dream worth pursuing. Alberta did it. So can we.
