BC Premier Christy Clark is dismissing a recent report about a proposed LNG project near Prince Rupert.
The Financial Post reported earlier this week that Petronas has threatened to walk away from its $36 billion Pacific NorthWest LNG development unless it receives federal approval by the end of the month.
The story cited the Malaysian state-owned company’s frustration with the uncertainty over Ottawa’s new climate-change priorities.

Meanwhile, opponents and supporters of the LNG facility near the mouth of the Skeena River are urging people to tell the federal government what they think of the project.
The deadline for public comment on the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency’s draft environmental assessment of the project is Friday, March 11th.
