A $13-billion oil refinery has been proposed near the community of Kitimat.
David Black, a BC community newspaper owner, will put up the billions of dollars to use the crude from Enbridge's controversial Northern Gateway pipeline.
This means tankers would ship refined fuels off of the BC northwest coast and not from Alberta.
This would substantially reduce the environmental risks and essentially put an end to the proposed pipeline.
The refinery would also create thousands of more jobs than the Northern Gateway project.
