The North Coast Convention Centre plays host for tonight's gathering
of Canadian Energy Citizens, an organization looking to build ongoing
support for a number of LNG and other energy related projects

Those attending tonight's meeting will have the opportunity to learn more about the group and the plans they have for the future, as they look to share their thoughts on LNG development in the province.

Much of the focus that they have provided to this point is directed towards the theme of the volume of employment and other benefits that energy projects can provide for British Columbia. With the group putting its focus on how money contributed to the provincial treasury works its way towards schools, health care and other infrastructure needs.

The main theme for this evening's session is that of Saying Yes to Lelu Island LNG.

The organization, which is an initiative of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers has taken on a number of community engagement projects in the past.

The most recent one a call for Canadians to send a letter to their MP in support of the TransMountain Expansion project.
