In this election, with so much focus on the unparalleled opportunity of exporting B.C.’s natural gas to Asia, it’s easy to overlook the many other equally impressive export and job creation opportunities that are underway here in B.C.
Over the next two to three years, eight new mines are slated to open in B.C. and another nine are being expanded. This will add as many as 10,000 new jobs and generate close to $1.6 billion in new revenue for the people of this province.
We have so many opportunities available to us here in B.C. but we have to be sure to seize on them so we can continue building a solid future we can be proud of to pass on to our children.
