Newsrelease: After failing to attract a single major investor for its proposed Goldboro Liquefied Natural Gas project on the Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia (Mi’kma’ki), Pieridae Energy has quietly missed its June 30th deadline for a Final Investment Decision.
Ken Summers looks into Mi’kmaq involvement in the Goldboro LNG man camp. Sipekne’katik Chief Mike Sack tells him Mi’kmaq involvement has ended, Pieridae says that’s not the case.
Letter: We will not be able to reach our national climate change goals while initiatives like Pieridae’s Goldboro project are even considered. This makes no sense to me whatsoever, especially when very knowledgeable people within the energy and financial industry are viewing this idea as a ‘boondoggle’.
Ken Summers looks at the absurd claim that the Goldboro LNG project, as Premier Iain Rankin put it, makes sense environmentally.
Pieridae is asking the feds for $1-billion to build a huge liquefied natural gas facility in Guysborough County. It’ risky, it’s bad for the environment, and there are so many far better things we could do with that kind of money, writes Robin Tress of the Council of Canadians.
Check out this powerful video by the amazing Dave Gunning as he sings the praises of the beautiful St Mary’s river in Guysborough County, and explains why plans by Atlantic Gold to construct an open pit gold mine alongside the river should be halted.
A coalition of more than 100 environmental and Indigenous groups from Canada and Europe are asking Germany to withdraw from a loan guarantee in support of a mega project to process and export natural gas in Goldboro, Guysborough County.

Jack Leonard takes a close look at the Goldboro LNG proposal and finds lots wrong with it. There is climate change, of course, but there are other issues at play as well, both for the province and for Guysborough County.
Ken Summers takes a closer look at the viability of the Goldboro LNG plant, and he finds serious obstacles to full development that the company would rather its German government investors wouldn’t know about. Not stated, but implied, this also means that it isn’t too late to resist this mega project that will jeopardize Nova Scotia’s greenhouse gas reduction targets.
