1949 West Coast Transmission came into existence and by 1955 the naturual gas "big pipeline" started

Rummaging around the VPL newspaper clippings yesterday I came across a "bonus" system that was offered to those along the Big Pipeline back in 1955.  I thought that it was the Westcoast Transmission Company but it turned out to be a different company altogether, something called Pacific Northern Gas, which as of December 31, 2011 was bought out by a company called AltaGas Ltd.

The title of the newspaper article was "Peter Pays Paul" the idea being that consumers, locally, on Canadian soil, would be paying the shot.  But now that Christy Clark has made it a Job One for her government to get the LNG plants up and running for OVERSEAS customers, its they who should be "paying the shot" for the benefit of those Northern BC communities effected by the disruption of a Natural Gas pipeline.
