Clark and Redford to meet in Kelowna
Premier Christy Clark and Alberta Premier Alison Redford are meeting Friday in Kelowna and oil is expected to be on the agenda.
The two premiers met last fall in Alberta in what was described as a frosty gathering during which Clark and Redford expressed their differences over plans by Calgary-based Enbridge (TSX:ENB) to build the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline from northern Alberta to northwest BC.
Clark said the project must meet BC's five conditions to get any chance of BC's approval while Redford suggested Clark was interested in getting a larger share of the profits at Alberta's expense.
Just last month after Clark's Liberals' surprising election victory, the BC government officially declared its opposition to Northern Gateway, telling the federal review panel the project should not go ahead as planned.
But others are suggesting the project, which includes shipping Alberta oil products to Asia on board tankers along BC's coast, is still moving forward.
