I'm not sure whether this project has been in the media much.
Not a lot. I had heard about it through our union but that us all.
I spent the last two years in Kamano and Kitamat. Lots of TFWs. Mostly US tradesmen and engineers from al over the world.
The tire shop in Kitamat couldn't keep staff because construction labours get about $10/hr plus bennies more than he would pay. That is why you cant find house builders. The good ones work heavy construction and make twice as much as they could building houses.
The wword I got before I left Kitamat was that the NG plants would wait until the smelter is finished because of the skilled labour shortage. The idle left likes to think that the current markets will kill the NG plants but their outlook is much farther into the future than 3 month gas price corrections.
