Natural Gas Advocates Tour Canada As Countless People Lose Their Jobs
Josh Sigurdson speaks with Alan Yu, the founder and chairman of ‘Fort St. John For LNG’ who is touring across Canada with a group of men and women who’ve been affected or simply care about raising awareness of the massive loss of jobs people in the natural gas and oil industry are facing, especially in Fort St. John, British Columbia. The advocates stood outside the Winnipeg Convention Center as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke inside.
Trudeau has not been kind to an industry that happens to be the backbone of so many communities across Canada and a major part of the Canadian economy as he takes a more “politically correct” position against any kind of fossil fuel. Alan Yu says he’s not looking for handouts, he simply wants the government to say yes to an LNG (Liquified Natural Gas) plant in the North/West. Of course with Notley in Alberta and Trudeau in Ottawa, there has been a controlled collapse of the oil and natural gas industry instead of a fair market demand bridge to other forms of energy. Because it’s a force manipulation of the markets, it’s basically pulling the rug out from underneath so many hard workers who are now left with almost nothing to support their families.
Alan will be driving to Ottawa to drive a message to Justin Trudea that they need jobs and the government should stop attacking hard working people.
Fort St. John for LNG has already met with countless politicians and groups across Canada on their journey, including the group oilrespect.ca and even meeting with Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister.
We thank Alan Yu and the whole crew at Fort St. John for LNG for their passion and hard work!
