October 2, 2018 will always be special to FSJ. LNG Canada finally gave their Final Investment Decision giving birth to an LNG Export Industry in British Columbia and Canada.
This mark a new chapter in the economic and job market history in FSJ.
I started FSJ for LNG when the economy of FSJ was dipping December 2015. From an unemployment rate that is so low that Statistics Canada would not even publish it to the highest in BC in just a matter of a few months in the early 2016. In the news then were those opposing LNG with almost nobody saying YES to LNG.
North East BC will stand to gain the most with an LNG Industry in BC. Long after the completion of LNG Canada, when jobs in the plant have stabilized to just plant operation, the will be at least 4 times that number on employees in NEBC suppyling Natural Gas to downstream LNG Canada.
