Getting the LNG project off the ground could be considered a win for the Trudeau government, which has struggled to get major energy projects built in Canada.

LNG Canada CEO Andy Calitz referred to the environmental battle over oil pipelines in B.C., drawing laughter as he noted that the gas project "shows the Prime Minister that it can be done in Premier Horgan's province". The first liquefied natural gas from the project is expected before the middle of the next decade.

The International Energy Agency has said that LNG demand is expected to hit 360 mtpa (million tonnes per annum) by 2023, compared to the 290 million mtpa traded in 2017.

LNG from the project will reach Asia in about half the time it takes from the U.S. Gulf Coast, LNG Canada said.

The announcement ensures Canada will be able to export domestic energy products to global markets at a fair price, said Chris Bloomer, CEO of the Canadian Energy Pipeline Association.

"In the 21st century, we don't have to choose between a healthy environment and a strong economy".

The partners include Royal Dutch Shell, Mitsubishi Corp., the Malaysian-owned Petronas, PetorChina Co. and Korean Gas Corp.

The $40-billion LNG Canada project is already facing opposition from environmentalists in British Columbia, but the business community and First Nations supporting the project cheered its positive final investment decision on Tuesday.

Each company will be responsible to provide its own natural gas supply and will individually market its share of liquefied natural gas. The LNG facility will be built in Kitimat, a town in north-western British Columbia (BC). There are now a total of eight such facilities across the country - three in British Columbia, two in Alberta, one in Ontario and two in Quebec.

Reports that a $40-billion LNG is a project is a go surfaced over the weekend, prompting concern from BC Green Party leader Andrew Weaver, who remains disappointed amid confirmation of the project.

But most importantly, in a province where indigenous groups have never formally ceded their ancestral lands to Canada, it comes down to aboriginal support, he says.

"B.C. taxpayers will subsidize its power by paying rates twice as high and taking on the enormous public debt required to build Site C. There may be as little as 100 permanent jobs at LNG Canada. I believe we can create far more jobs in other industries that won't drastically increase our emissions".

She then called the Kavanaugh hearings and the discussion surrounding it, "one the most upsetting things I have ever witnessed". Gaga opened up about her experience as a sexual assault survivor while discussing the documentary on "CBS Sunday Morning".

A cabinet order was signed Tuesday, bypassing debate in the legislature and exempting the provincial sales tax during the construction phase of the project.

With projects like LNG Canada's, our country is well-positioned to help meet this growing demand. Horgan's government intends to repeal an LNG income tax that was imposed on the Petronas-led Pacific Northwest LNG project that was cancelled amid a slump in LNG.

The announcement 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. Canadian producers also hold a geographic advantage because it's an eight-day tanker journey from British Columbia to Tokyo, versus 20 days at sea for Louisiana cargoes. The B.C. NDP campaigned to implement a plan to meet our targets and reaffirmed that promise in our Confidence and Supply Agreement. "We came in and we saw we needed to have a new framework".

"We've never had an opportunity like this, where our government and our programs and services aren't dependent on other government sources for funding", she said.
