Vaughn Palmer: Weaver comes up dry drilling NDP over deep well credits | Vancouver Sun
For the final question period of the fall legislature session, Green leader Andrew Weaver challenged the New Democrats over continuing some hefty subsidies for natural gas drilling that were inherited from the B.C. Liberals.
“Every year the B.C. government doles out hundreds of millions of dollars to oil and gas companies to subsidize horizontal drilling in the northeast of our province,” Weaver began, citing the credits offered to encourage drilling of deeper wells in exploring for natural gas.
