Calling On Our Energy Experts

For Immediate Release

“Calling On Our Energy Experts”

The Northeast BC Resource Municipalities Coalition is hosting a working session on Wednesday, February 28, 2018 from 10am to 4:30pm at the Pomeroy Hotel & Conference Centre in Fort St. John.

This is an opportunity for Northeast British Columbia to shine as leaders in ENERGY!  The Province has committed to developing a new Energy Roadmap. Our position as Energy Experts gives us a unique opportunity to have a working session and then to share our work with the Province of British Columbia.

This symposium will identify what needs to be included and considered in the roadmap, to ensure optimal outcomes for the good of all British Columbians.  By engaging the people who work directly in the energy sector, we will provide valuable insight to the development of the Province’s consultation process, and ultimately the final document; the Province of British Columbia’s Energy Roadmap. 

The morning begins with a message from the Ministry of Energy, Mines, and Petroleum Resources, followed by a panel discussion about what an energy roadmap is.  We will discuss what needs to be included, who needs to be consulted, and what optimal outcomes are. David Keane of the BC LNG Alliance will deliver a keynote entitled LNG: The Time is NOW! 

This is OUR opportunity to shape the energy future of British Columbia.

Mayor Rob Fraser of the District of Taylor says, “The timing is perfect for us to work together to build a roadmap for BC’s energy future.”

“The people who live and work in the energy sector have a tremendous amount of knowledge.    It’s the perfect opportunity for us to assist in crafting BC’s new Energy Roadmap,” says Mayor Lori Ackerman of the City of Fort St John.
