St. Andrews Mayor Opposes LNG Tanker Traffic in Canadian Waters

A report in today’s Bangor Daily News says that Mayor John Craig of St. Andrews, New Brunswick expressed his opposition to the passage of LNG tankers en route to the proposed Passamaquoddy Bay import terminals. “No LNG tankers will move through Head Harbour Passage, and internal Canadian waters in Passamaquoddy Bay are closed to LNG tankers – period,” Craig said at an anti-LNG development rally held this past Saturday. Also at the rally, one of the leaders of the opposition group, Save Passamaquoddy Bay, briefly discussed potential impacts of LNG on Passamaquoddy Bay, citing a report that is being prepared by Yellow Wood Associates entitled “Report on Potential Economic and Fiscal Impacts of LNG Terminals on the Whole Passamaquoddy Bay.” [Access to archived articles requires a fee.]
