Kitimat mayor hoping for the best

The mayor of Kitimat is hoping plans to build at least two liquified natural gas plants within three years will boost spirits, and business, in her community.

“It’ll mean jobs for people that can stay in the community now. It’s really a win-win situation.”

Mayor Joanne Monaghan says when she moved to Kitimat 40 years ago, the population was 15,000, and it’s dropped to less than 9,000.
