Making the Right Investment: Stock Market vs. Investing in Land

The following article is a guest post by Dr. Slim Feriani, the Chief Investment Officer at ROI Land Investments. Despite differences of opinion as to how best to invest capital, one thing all financial advisers agree on is: only invested money has the potential to earn more money.

Which is the better option and why? Perhaps the answer to this question has more to do with the investor than the investment.

NEB gives green light to LNG exports from Kitimat

VANCOUVER — The board that regulates natural-gas exploration and production in Canada has approved its first 40-year export licence to a joint-venture company led by Shell. The National Energy Board permit will allow LNG Canada to export up to 1,494-billion cubic metres of liquefied natural gas from a terminal that will be located near the B.C. north-coast community of Kitimat. Until the National Energy Board Act was amended in June 2015, the maximum term length of an export permit was 25 years. The licence must still be approved by the prime minister and his cabinet. The announcement comes just days after the B.C. Oil and Gas Commission approved an LNG Canada facility permit, --- Continue reading

Kitimat has long been a desired location for global-scale industrial --- Continue reading

‘Man camp’ companies estimate LNG jobs at 20,000-plus

Temporary-work-camp builders shifting focus to B.C. from Alberta The B.C. government’s projections for job creation and economic development from liquefied natural gas (LNG) have, at times, been so astronomical as to invite scorn. There are 19 LNG projects proposed. The government has estimated that five LNG projects could generate 100,000 jobs over a nine-year period – an estimate the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) disputed in an analysis in July. The CCPA put construction-period jobs at 2,000 to 3,000 over three years and only 200 to 300 permanent jobs. But companies that accurately gauge workforce markets might offer a more accurate snapshot of how many --- Continue reading
