In a letter to FERC Chairman Jon Wellinghoff responding to the recently filed application of Calais LNG, the new Canadian Ambassador to the United States, Gary Doer, reiterated the Canadian federal government’s position that it will not permit LNG vessels to transit through Canadian waters in Passamaquoddy Bay or Head Harbour Passage. Ambassador Doer’s letter notes that  since U.S. federal agencies have concluded that LNG vessel traffic through these waterways requires collaboration with Canadian authorities and Canada will not permit these activities, FERC “may … wish to advise project proponents that they should consider withdrawing their applications.” Further details are available in the Telegraph-Journal.
