Are you confused by the raft of natural gas pipeline and LNG plant proposals coming down the political pipe? If so, don't worry; you are not alone. This information (will download as a pdf) should enable you to make some sense of things. It was last updated December 15, 2014.

Take heart: It is a calculated strategy of large corporations and complicit governments to intentionally overwhelm the concerned public. They flood the arena with proposals, thereby making excessive demands on the volunteer time and energy of those who want to respond. They even give their proposals similar names, so that it is difficult to keep them straight. Please keep at it. This is an important time for the planet and for the wild landscapes of BC.
These proposals, although monumental when considered collectively, are but a few drops in the industrial bucket. For an overview of all the mega-industry that is presently proposed for coastal BC, click here.
