FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Minister of Energy and Mines and Minister Responsible for Core Review has responded to the claims that LNG will be damaging to B.C., and also responded to concerns about Site C.In an interview with Energeticcity.ca, Bennett responded to the claims from about 90 climate scientists from Canada, the U.S., Australia, and the UK are warning of dire environmental effects if the project is approved.“You can’t really judge what is being proposed for Canada without looking at the rest of the world. So when you look at the possibility of the LNG industry in British Columbia, you can’t say ‘Oh well that is going to generate GHG emissions and therefore we shouldn’t do that’ without looking elsewhere in the world, look where that LNG is going to go. Is it going to displace other dirtier fuels like coal? And I think the answer is clearly, yes, and I think having a LNG industry in B.C., which will be the cleanest LNG in the world is actually a good thing in terms of overall global emissions reduction.”Bennett went on to say that you need to recognize Canada is responsible for around 2% of global emissions. He says we also need to recognize that B.C. is responsible for a small fraction of that 2%. He says we have to put that in context with what is to be gained from a LNG industry.- Advertisement -Minister Bennett also addressed concerns regarding the Site C Mega Dam Project. As well as the matters before the courts.“Well, there are 4 cases outstanding. However, 3 of them have been heard by the trial court levels and B.C. Hydro won those cases. Those cases are being appealed but Hydro and Government have a obligation to make sure the Site C project is built on time and on budget. You can’t be subjecting the project to constant delay and still have it be on budget, so the project is going to go ahead.”Advertisement Bennett also wanted to remind people that the vast majority of those working on the Site C project are from British Columbia. 70% approximately. He says this project will create jobs now only now, but in the future.

The way Rory Mccann aka The Hound was cheering for Maisie Williams when they found out Arya will be the one to kill the Night King is something else. He’s a proud father.— nikolaj coster waldau stan (@maleedus) May 27, 2019 Tags Dead wights! Is that what Arya jumped from? Still wouldn’t have made much sense but it would have been something if they showed it.😂😂😂— SandraM (@SandraM440) May 27, 2019 But there you have it. Arya jumped off a pile of dead bodies and saved the realms of men. If there was any doubt about how she got the air time, now we know. She’s now sailing, on a boat, somewhere West of Westeros. Go well, Kingslayer. How did she kill Night King? Helen Sloan/HBO Game of Thrones may have ended a week ago but there are still a lot of unanswered questions. Fortunately, HBO dropped a Game of Thrones season 8 documentary called “The Last Watch” on Sunday evening, detailing the trials and tribulations of filming the world’s biggest TV show. During the broadcast, viewers found out a handful of details that shed light on some of the series’ biggest moments. And there’s arguably no bigger moment than when Arya dropped a blade through the heart of the Night King, an organ the Night King needed to live, moments before he was to lop Bran’s head off. How did Arya make that leap? Now we know. During a table read of the Battle of Winterfell, Bryan Cogman is excitedly rushing through the script as the camera pans across the actor’s faces. When he gets to the pivotal scene he discusses the moment, Cogman notes how Arya “vaults off a pile of dead Wights”, to come careening through the darkness.Wait, what? Arya’s big leap came off the back of a pile of dead Wights just hanging out in the Godswood?We took a look at the episode and there were plenty of dead bodies on the ground.It’s dark in the weirwood, but there’s plenty of bodies to leap from. HBO The crew and actors definitely enjoyed the big reveal, it didn’t seem like anyone was particularly concerned with Arya’s big kill (at least, not like the internet was). Rory McCann, who plays the Hound, was fist pumping and Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, was all smiles. Burning questions we still have about Game of Thrones 40 TV and Movies Comments #GamefThrones so Arya jumped off a pile of dead whites to kill the knight king.. BULLSHIT they were literally surrounded by whites tf you mean. Some more proof of terrible writing— Eddie Nagel (@EddieNagel4) May 27, 2019 Game of Thrones
