LNG Canada’s $ 40B investment in its expansion is the single largest private sector investment in Canada’s history.
“It will create thousands of middle-class jobs and help reduce global pollution,” said Minister of Natural Resources, Amarjeet Sohi.
“Today’s announcement by LNG Canada represents the single largest private sector investment in the history of Canada,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Tuesday at the announcement in Vancouver.
The announcement of LNG’s expansion was immediately cheered by the energy industry and decried by the B.C. Green Party, which is part of the coalition supporting the NDP government.
