BC rejects Northern Gateway in final submission

After years of speculation, the BC government has told a federal review panel that it doesn’t support the Northern Gateway pipeline.

In its final submission to the review panel, it says the way it stands, the 6 billion dollar project should not be approved.

A big concern from the province was over what it says are unrealistic commitments to oil spill prevention from Enbridge, the company behind the project.

The pipeline would transport bitumen from Alberta to a port in Kitimat, BC.

The review panel will hear final arguments beginning in June, and a final report is to be given to the federal government by the end of the year.
