Peace Country politicians Back proposed Quebec LNG plant

first_img– Advertisement -“Anytime we open up the international market for supplying natural gas, that helps Western Canada, and particularly Northwestern Alberta and Northeastern British Columbia.” “We got the Northeast (B.C.) Mayors and the Chambers of Commerce (onboard). I knew that Mayor Given because I was involved in a group with him not very long ago in regards to some work they were doing in regards to Bill C-69. So, I knew there was an organization that Bill was very involved in over there.” said Bumstead SAGUENAY, QC – A proposed Quebec LNG plant has received the backing from Peace Country, politicians Dawson Creek Mayor Dale Bumstead and Grande Prairie Mayor Bill Given. According to the article. there is already opposition lining up in Quebec, plus Premier Francois Legault is on record as saying his province “doesn’t want Alberta’s dirty energy.” In an article written by Curtis Galbraith with Everything GP reports, a $7-billion idea to build an LNG plant in Saguenay, Quebec, would process natural gas from Western Canada in which Bumstead and Given have written letters in support of the proposal called Energie Saguenay. Bumstead shared the Mayor of Saguenay, plus a lot of people there, want this project to go ahead. He adds many other Peace Region municipalities are also backing this project. “So, for me, opening up another one to two billion cubic feet of gas a day is very positive for the economic fortunes of our communities and our regions, both in the Alberta and British Columbia Peace Regions.” In the article, according to Bumstead, the plant would process 1.5-billion cubic feet of gas a day. The desire is to have it operational by 2025. Hope is a new plant would supply liquefied natural gas to international markets as a replacement for things like coal and fuel oil. “To me, the message and what we are trying to demonstrate here is that we do the development of the natural gas industry better than anybody else in North America and if they’re going to source the gas, they should be sourcing it from Northern Alberta and Northeastern British Columbia.”Advertisementlast_img read more

TD DOHERTY UNCOVERS ‘FURTHER SHOCKING DETAILS ON BANKERS’ PAY’

first_imgSinn Féin Finance spokesperson Pearse Doherty has accused Minister for Finance of “feigning outrage” and “adopting a Pontius Pilate approach to excessive bankers pay” after new details of bank bosses pay were revealed.Deputy Doherty made the comments after Minister Noonan detailed “further shocking revelations” on bankers pay in AIB and Bank of Ireland.Deputy Doherty said: “Today under questioning Minister for Finance Michael Noonan revealed that 165 top executives on Bank of Ireland and AIB are receiving salaries in excess of €200,000 per year. 55 of these are earning over €300,000 per year. Twenty-eight are earning more than €400,000 per year. “It is my understanding that the minister has not written to the management of either bank asking for voluntary reductions in the excessive salaries of any of these 165 individuals.“The Minister initiated a review 18 months ago which has not yet concluded. Recently he brought in Mercer Consultants to assist with the review at a cost to the taxpayer €120,000.“In response to my questions today the minister expressed what can only be described as fake outrage. Despite all his bluster he is adopting a Pontius Pilate approach to excessive bankers pay.“Like something out of an episode of Yes Minister, Noonan is trying to hide behind a review as an excuse for not taking the action that everyone is demanding. “Public and private sector workers have seen their salaries and pensions reduced significantly since the start of the crisis. The vast majority of these workers are on low to middle incomes.“Yet the government continues to protect the excessive pay and pensions of top bankers, many of whom played leading roles in the events that caused the economic crisis in the first place.“It is time for the minister to act and introduce the necessary legislation to bring these excessive pay-outs to an end.”Full details of the Dail exchange are below:DÁIL QUESTION NO 40To ask the Minister for Finance the number of staff that are on a total remuneration package including pension payments, allowances and benefits of between €100,000 and €200,000, between €200,000 and €300,000, between €300,000 and €400,000 and the number with more than €500,000 at Allied Irish Bank..– Sandra McLellan.

I have recently engaged, as I informed the Opposition Spokespersons on Finance, the services of Mercer (Ireland) Limited following a limited competitive tender competition to assist my Department in bringing this exercise to a conclusion. The estimated cost of the review, at this stage, is approximately €120,000.The object of the review is to thoroughly review all remuneration practices at the covered institutions with the object of simplifying remuneration and compensation structures, discouraging excessive risk-taking and to better align pay and reward to long term value creation. Present Government policy on remuneration dictates that no employee, at the covered institutions may receive more than €500,000 (excluding pension contributions) per annum and remains in force.Numerous engagements by my officials and Mercer have taken place since the awarding of the contract. I am expecting the consultant’s report to be delivered by year end whereupon consultations with the various stakeholders will commence.As I have said previously, I fully recognise that there is a real public interest in the levels of remuneration at the covered institutions and have committed to placing the details underpinning the review into the public domain.TD DOHERTY UNCOVERS ‘FURTHER SHOCKING DETAILS ON BANKERS’ PAY’ was last modified: November 15th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalPearse Doherty TDTD DOHERTY UNCOVERS ‘FURTHER SHOCKING DETAILS ON BANKERS’ PAY’last_img read more

Five of his nine carries went for 25 yards or more, one of which also resulted in the Brahmas’ first touchdown of many. The Wildcats finally managed to get on the board with a 28-yard-field goal with three seconds left in the first half. But any momentum they gained going into halftime was quickly erased by the Brahmas in the second half after a 1-yard touchdown run by Albert Ramos that capped a 10-play drive.

Jansen completed 7 of 15 passes for 76 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
