Premier Christy Clark, of British Columbia, on her recent trade mission to India, was quoted in a Times of India story, saying, “India needs a million skilled workers every year. We can help. If we can help train 3,000 and 300 of them help us build an LNG industry, it’s good for you and it’s good for us.”
Clark said the opposition NDP has taken her comments out of context, and the jobs building liquefied natural gas plants will go to British Columbians first.
Currently there are 74,000 temporary foreign workers in B.C. More on the story tomorrow.
