LNG-Buy BC session comes to Ashcroft

MLA Mike Bernier will host an information session for local business people on Oct. 16 at 7 pm in the Ashcroft Community Hall.

Fraser-Nicola MLA Jackie Tegart and Community Futures Sun Country are proud to host Peace River South MLA Mike Bernier as he tours the province hosting information sessions for local businesses on the LNG-Buy BC program. This program connects LNG proponents with B.C.-based businesses, large and small, from every corner of the province.

“LNG in BC is a once in a lifetime opportunity to grow our economy, create jobs and provide a bright future for all British Columbians,” Peace River South MLA Mike Bernier said. “I am looking forward to meeting with businesses from Merritt and throughout Fraser-Nicola to inform them how they can be a crucial part in LNG project supply chains.”

The information session will take place on Oct. 16 at the Ashcroft Community Hall from 7-8:30 pm where local businesses in the region will hear first-hand the benefit of registering in the program, the key features of the program and how to pursue LNG procurement opportunities.

“I am looking forward to host my colleague, Mike Bernier, to make his presentation to businesses right here in my constituency,” Fraser-Nicola MLA Jackie Tegart said. “When this session is complete, businesses who participated will have the necessary information to have a head-start in planning their operations for this exciting opportunity.”
