Premier Christy Clark's dreams of a booming liquefied natural gas industry in B-C took another hit yesterday when LNG Canada delayed its final investment decision on a project in Kitimat. Clark made a massive political bet on the future of LNG in 2013, promising 100-thousand jobs and 100-billion dollars in revenue over decades.
