Canadian Member of Parliament Reiterates Anti-LNG Stance

After his party took the majority in Canada’s election Monday, Conservative MP Greg Thompson renewed his vow to fight LNG development in Passamaquoddy Bay. “We [took] a position on this in September 2004, and our position has been carried over and articulated during the election. Obviously, we are against the passage of LNG tankers through Head Harbour Passage in what we consider to be internal Canadian waters,” Thompson said yesterday. “And [Prime Minister-elect] Mr. [Stephen] Harper has stated that we will use every diplomatic and legal means to enforce that no.” Calais LNG spokesman Fred Moore congratulated the winning party but dismissed Thompson’s statement, saying, “This is Greg Thompson’s opinion … If LNG is as much of a concern as Greg Thompson says it is I would say it’s a great topic for Stephen Harper and George W. Bush.” In its story, today’s Bangor Daily News [print edition only] notes that Thompson has received criticism due to the construction of Canadian-owned LNG terminals in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick; Thompson has said that the issue is one of safe location, rather than nationality.
