David Black featured at Kelowna Chamber luncheon

We are pleased to offer our members and residents of Kelowna the rare opportunity of hearing David Black talk about the Kitimat Refinery Proposal, says a press release issued by the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce.

Date: Tuesday, April 15

Time: 11:30am - 1:30pm

Location: Ramada Hotel & Conference Centre on Hwy 97 in Kelowna

Canada's push to deliver oilsands bitumen to overseas markets will significantly impact B.C. How do we manage the environmental risk to B.C. while building economic benefit through job creation and tax revenue?

At $32 billion, it will be the biggest single investment project ever completed in B.C. With 6,000 construction jobs for five years and then thousands of new permanent jobs, it will create the most employment opportunities of any B.C. project ever. All of B.C. will benefit!

The strategies developed today will be felt on the Pacific Coast of B.C. for generations. Let's do it right.

Mr.Black will discuss his proposal to refine bitumen in B.C. and to ship only refined fuels offshore.

Tickets:

$40 for members, $55 for future members

Tickets must be purchased by 4 pm on Wed, April 9.
