David Black, the owner of Black Print, has announced plans for reporters on August 17, 2012 in Vancouver for the oil and gas refinery, which he proposes to build in Kitimat.
Victoria David Black is considering whether political winds can be reversed in favor of his independent proposal to build a oil refinery near Kitim, as opposed to expanding the Transk pipeline to Burnaby.
Federal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government is cold for the idea, Black said, and Prime Minister John Horgan could not support the support.
However, with Alberto's newly elected prime minister, Jason Kenny, who is preparing to take office and chances for the government's turnover in Ottawa after the October elections, Black reflects on the support comments he heard from conservative camps.
"There is no doubt that they will be supportive," Black said Thursday.
Black, whose regular work is owned by "Black Print", first proposed its plan in 2012.
Last summer, Black met Kenny as leader of Alberta's Conservative League leader and conservative party leader Andrew Shir to lobby his proposal after feeling cool of interest from the federal liberal government. Crn said the two leaders expressed interest, and Sheer, after a conversation during a visit to BC, asked him to meet him and his councilors in Ottawa.
"I had the impression that I was very interested," Black said about his meetings with Sheer.
Kenny, whom she last met last August at a dinner in Calgary, told Black that "it seems a good idea (if we can) to move oil safely and cheaply on the coast."
And with the high gas prices at Metro Vancouver, which share the space on the top of the political agenda, Black re-connects with BC and the political leaders of Alberta, urging them to focus more on co-operation on their divisions over the Trans-Mountain project.
Horgan, discussing the province's concerns about high gas prices, has repeatedly complained that the lack of domestic refining capacity has contributed to industry problems.
The Chithim Kitimat Clean proposal will be a $ 22 billion project to convert Alberta's bitumen from solid oil pellets to a delivery service to a refinery north of Kitimat. Refined gas, diesel and other petroleum products – not diluted bitumen – will be loaded with tankers for delivery to markets around the world.
Black betting The first nations and other traditional opponents of olcinj will be more sustainable if they eliminate the risk of rupture of the pipeline and threaten the risk of catastrophic spillage of a dilute bitumen tank with less harmful gas or diesel.
Officials from Keny and Sheer offices did not respond to Postmedia New requests for comment.
Horgan, who spoke on Thursday in a Langley-related transport announcement, said he had asked his deputy minister to look at ways in which the PCs, as subnational jurisdiction, could spur gas price cuts in the short term or increase in capacity for refining in the long run.
Horgan accepted Black's proposal as an option and said: "I look forward to entering the regulatory process to see if there is capital, in terms of capital, in terms of expertise, to withdraw it." Regardless of the government's NPF's own proposed legislation on vehicles with by-emission, which will exclude the sale of new internal combustion vehicles by 2040.
