An apparent brainchild of the Minister of Energy, Mines, and Natural Gas Rich Coleman (no shit, this is actually his name!), “Fueling the Future: Global Opportunities for LNG in BC” is a conference aimed at highlighting to the global market the “vast supply of natural gas (in BC) … (and the) important steps forward (taken thus far), including policy changes to foster growth and to ensure power is available to support development.” Read Bill C-45?
