WTF GNL

Posted on: February 24th, 2021 by Protect Our Winters Canada

An archaic technology ruining another pristine landscape. That’s what’s at stake with GNL Quebec project that would involve the construction of a 750 km gas pipeline, a gas liquefaction plant and a super-methane ship export terminal. This mega-project aims to export fossil gas (how can we still be building fossil fuel pipelines???) from the West to international markets (Europe, Asia, etc.), through Abitibi and Témiscamingue, Haute-Mauricie, Lac-St-Jean, Saguenay, Saguenay Fjord, St. Lawrence and well as communities in Northern Ontario.

The proposed route crosses territory occupied by First Peoples and provides for the construction of a gas pipeline of more than 750 km to transport gas from Western Canada to a gas liquefaction plant in Port Saguenay. In addition, storage infrastructures and an export port will also be built. In total, at least 300 super LNG (liquified natural gas) tankers would use the Saguenay Fjord. In the coming weeks the Quebec government will be considering their support of this project. PSSST………we’re pulling together a campaign to keep “Le Belle Province” belle. Stay tuned.
