Still open for business

The B.C. Chamber of Commerce says it wants Alberta to know it still has friends in the province when it comes to the latest dispute over the Trans Mountain pipeline.

The group representing 36-thousand B-C businesses says not everyone agrees with the NDP government's proposal to restrict new shipments of bitumen off the coast until it can determine that shippers are prepared and able to properly clean up a spill.

The move would block Kinder Morgan's planned expansion of its Alberta to Burnaby pipeline but Chamber president Val Litwin says a recent poll suggests 51 per cent of his group’s members support the project.

Litwin is encouraging project supporters to stand up and be counted.
