BC Premier Christy Clark heads to Alberta today to air her environmental concerns about Enbridge's (TSX:ENB) proposed Northern Gateway oil pipeline.
Premier Alison Redford agreed to meet today with her Western neighbour, although the two have been butting heads over the six-billion dollar project.
Clark told B.C.'s municipal politicians on Friday she's staying firm in demanding that environmental issues be resolved before the twin pipeline from Alberta to the West Coast can proceed.
The pipe would carry oil across some of the province's most pristine lands and waterways before being loaded onto tankers bound for Asia.
Clark also wants a greater share of the revenues Alberta will earn, arguing that's required to offset the increased environmental risk.
Redford, however, has said in the past that she won't budge over the cash.
