Off the Cluff: Lori Ackerman

The "Energetic City" mayor Lori Ackerman on why Fort St. John is even more energetic than usual

This month’s announcement that the five LNG Canada partners will invest nearly $40 billion to build a liquefied natural gas plant and pipeline has been welcomed with celebrations across northern B.C.

Rightfully so – it's the single largest private investment in Canadian history.

It's even bigger news in the area in and around Fort St. John, where they put the N.G. in LNG. Fort St. John Mayor Lori Ackerman joined Rick Cluff via Skype to tell us what kind of impact this project will have on her community.
