BC Election-Kinder Morgan Pipeline

/ 97.3 The Eagle
               Canada’s natural resources minister won’t say if he thinks the results of the B-C election threaten the TransMountain pipeline expansion. But Jim Carr says the federal government will make its support of the project clear to the newly elected government — once the results are confirmed after absentee ballots are counted and recounts are done. Premier Christy Clark’s Liberals currently hold 43 seats — one short of a majority — while the New Democrats won 41 and the Green Party three. Both those parties oppose the pipeline expansion between Alberta and Burnaby and could try to derail it if they work together but Carr says it received conditional federal approval after “very rigorous review.”
