Chamber of Commerce to host LNG Development event March 1st

Supporting responsible LNG development will be the theme of a Prince Rupert and District Chamber of Commerce Luncheon on Tuesday at the North Coast Convention Centre.

Chamber organizers are looking for a large turnout of community members next week, hoping to attract those who may be curious to learn more about LNG and other industries proposed for the region.

From the luncheon information session, the Chamber is looking to build support in the region not only for LNG industry, but for other forms of development on the North Coast.

As part of the Tuesday event, the Chamber has assembled a roster of speakers from a number of areas of the community to share their thoughts on how the industry can benefit the community.

Among those scheduled to take part in the lunch time forum are:

Blair Mirau
Clifford White, Elected Chief, Gitxaala First Nation
Dave MacDonald, Mayor, District of Port Edward
Glen Edwards, President, ILWU Local 505
James Witzke, Tsimshian Environmental Stewardship Society

The Tuesday event takes place from 11:45 AM to 1:15 PM, tickets cost 25 dollars for members and Not-yet Members alike.

The Deadline for Reservations is 8AM of March 1st and reservations are required as No Tickets will be available at the door.
