Backgrounder: Can Pacific NorthWest LNG pass Canada's climate test?

Video: Webinar recording

Slides: Presentation

This media briefing will offer journalists a primer on the climate implications of the Pacific NorthWest LNG project near Prince Rupert, B.C. The Petronas-backed project and its associated upstream operations could become the largest source of carbon pollution in Canada.

During the webinar, Matt Horne, B.C. associate director for the Pembina Institute and a member of the province's Climate Leadership Team, will discuss PNW LNG in the context of Canada's and B.C.'s climate plans. Horne will also outline opportunities to reduce the project's emissions.

A Q&A session for journalists will follow the presentation.
