Sitting just down the table from director Des Nobels, who has spoken against Pacific NorthWest LNG locating on Lelu Island and Aurora LNG’s plans for a facility on Digby Island, Brain acknowledged not all in the community are supportive of the industry. However, he said it was critically important the city be prepared despite concerns of some residents.
“Regardless of the negative or positive feelings about it, it is important we are as prepared as possible so people can benefit from it as much as possible. If it happens, it’s better that you have people taken care of,” he said, also acknowledging the impact the industry could have on the North Coast.
“LNG is going to transform this town at a major level and Prince Rupert will not be recognizable when LNG goes through.”
