Rae told a Vancouver audience Saturday he still sees a need for his party's informal ban on oil tankers along B.C.'s north coast, which is right where Enbridge wants tankers to load up with oil coming from Alberta's oilsands via a new pipeline.
A formal ban would kill that cursed pipeline; an informal ban suggests opposition to it but plays about with semantics. Nevertheless, its a start.
Nevertheless, this should also lay down a marker for the other LPoC leadership potentials. The Libs should stand with B.C. and against Northern Gateway (and opposed to Alta., where they have no hope anyhow).
