Northern Gateway: B.C. Conservative Leader John Cummins Speaks Out Re Northern Gateway


...sounds alot like Christy Clark.  So now all the major parties are on the same side of the issue.  So far, Alberta Premier Alison Redford is committed to despoiling the province next door without incurring any kind of cost.  Good luck with that, cowgirl.

Not quite all the major parties. The BC libs and BC Cons support a pipeline and risk if we get more money. The BC NDP and Greens oppose the pipeline.

All are against the pipeline as currently envisioned. Put it that way.

I can't see why there's any discussion of asking Alberta to "share" royalties, when I don't believe there is anything stopping BC from simply imposing charges on oil transiting the province.
I think this is a bit of theatre ginned up by Clarke and Redford.
Christie's political career is as dead as the pipeline. She and Redford get to play tough-talking standing-up-for-BCers/Albertans, then later take up their respective roles as great-deal-for-BC-maker!/pipeline-for-Alberta saviour!
